New jobs are coming to Genesee County.

The Michigan Department of Transportation is awarding a state transportation economic grant for $896,000 to support the creation of 55 new jobs.

Performance Fabricating, a division of Miller Industries LLC specializing in steel fabrication and robotic welding, will be investing just over $9 million to construct a new 100,000 square-foot facility on Thompson Road in Fenton Township.

The company is a primary supplier to automotive, healthcare and institutional customers worldwide.

To lower shipping costs for the company, MDOT will be reconstructing Thompson Road between Torrey Road and the northbound US-23 ramps. Crews will also widen the two-lane road to three lanes.

"The cooperation we received from MDOT toward the improvement of the Thompson Road corridor in Fenton is greatly appreciated," said Chad Miller of Miller Industries LLC. "The road improvement to three lanes from the US-23 expressway to Torrey Road is a major factor in the development of the most strategic business artery in our township. Not only will it serve to draw new businesses to this corridor, but it will allow current users greater efficiency and much safer commutes."

The total cost of the project is $1,420,000. That includes $896,000 in TEDF funds, $284,000 from the Genesee County Road Commission, and $240,000 from Fenton Township.
