In October, WACKER held a safely distanced small gathering and began “moving dirt” in the construction of its new Innovation Center & Regional Headquarters. While there cannot be a large gathering due to the COVID-19 pandemic, WACKER is celebrating this accomplishment with the release of a virtual groundbreaking.
“Ann Arbor SPARK has worked with WACKER for more than four years, helping the company locate its R&D facility here, where it has access to the technical talent it needs to advance its business,” said Paul Krutko, president and CEO of Ann Arbor SPARK. “WACKER has remained steadfast in its desire to stay in this region, despite attractive offers from other states vying for the company to relocate. All around, it’s gratifying to see this project advance and for WACKER to break ground on a permanent home in Pittsfield Township. Ann Arbor SPARK will continue to support WACKER’s future growth, especially as it works to hire workers at this new location.”
The video features a message from Governor Gretchen Whitmer as well as the MEDC, Ann Arbor SPARK, Pittsfield Township officials, project business partners, and WACKER team members.
