GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - A Chinese maker of furniture components is establishing a new plant and investing $4.9 million in West Michigan.
Jiecang Linear Motion Technology Company, operating in the U.S. as J-Star Motion Corporation, is adding manufacturing operations in Cedar Springs, at 500 West St.
The new facility will add 122 jobs to the region and complement J-Star’s recently opened Kent City office and warehouse facilities, at 83 South Main St.
The new plant will support J-Star’s business growth in the U.S., which centers around manufacturing linear motion and lifting systems for the office furniture industry.
J-Star is currently in the process of staffing the new facility and hopes to begin production by mid-2018.
