Companies Look to Create Turbine Part Manufacturing Center in Muskegon

This sounds pretty awesome. Looks like a consortium of companies is looking to establish a center for developing and manufacturing wind turbine parts, and they've selected Muskegon, Michigan as the place to do it.

MUSKEGON — Two leading West Michigan companies have joined forces to plan a Muskegon manufacturing center designed to support the state's growing commercial wind industry.

The proposed consortium of the two companies and multiple others — including at least one global firm — would not be a developer of wind farms but a group of companies and supporting agencies which wants to build parts for wind turbines, ship those parts across the globe and service the land-based wind industry.

And they want to do it from Muskegon.
