Willow Run Mobility Center a Game-changer

MICHauto Statement on Governor’s call for mobility facility at Willow Run

DETROIT, January 19, 2016 – Today, MICHauto released the following statement following Governor Rick Snyder’s comments regarding a mobility center at Willow Run.

“Michigan is leading the way in the rapid development of the connected and autonomous vehicle and this will only help that effort. Willow Run would serve as a world-class resource for companies that are here, but also as a magnet to attract tech and automotive companies. This better positions Michigan to earn its share of the billions of dollars of investment expected to result from the pursuit of the driverless vehicle,” said Glenn Stevens, vice president of MICHauto, which is part of the Michigan Mobility Initiative along with Business Leaders for Michigan, Michigan Dept. of Transportation, Michigan Economic Development Corporation and the University Research Corridor.
