Cass City, WI -- July 25 -- A Michigan Strategic Fund grant to Walbro Engine Management LLC will help the business expand in Cass City and create 28 new jobs.

The company plans to invest about $4.2 million in its facility with help from a $165,000 grant.

Walbro Engine Management was established in 1950 in Fenton and relocated to Cass City in 1954. It is a manufacturer of carburetors, ignition systems, fuel storage systems, and other components for power equipment, marine, and recreational applications.

“Walbro Engine Management has been in Cass City for 60 years, and I’m proud that they chose to expand and create jobs right here in the Thumb,” said State Rep. Terry Brown (D-Pigeon) noting the company chose its Cass City location for the expansion over a competing site in Mexico. “This is a great example of state and local officials working together with businesses to support the local economy and improve our communities.”


“This grant is excellent news for Cass City,” said U.S. Rep. Candice Miller (R-Harrison Township). “I applaud this grant to help Walbro Engine Management LLC with their expansion, and I believe it will have a significant economic impact on the community.”


The Michigan Strategic Fund was created in 1984 to promote economic development and create jobs in Michigan.


Cass City Village officials also offered Walbro a 12-year property tax abatement.
