Details emerge about $7 million Forest River plan

WHITE PIGEON, Mich. — Forest River will open its first location in Michigan in order to find suitable workers, a $7 million economic development expected to bring 396 jobs into the area, MLive reported today.

Ron Kitchens, the chief executive officer of Southwest Michigan First, told MLive that Forest River is looking for plumbers, electricians, carpenters and people with similar skills.  “They just simply didn’t have the labor ability in Northern Indiana,” he explained.

The company received federal and state grants and a local incentive to help defray the cost of such things as new sewer and water infrastructure, and roads. The project will involve erecting three 100,000-square-foot buildings in what is now green space in the Village of White Pigeon.
