Low Corporate Tax in Michigan Drives More Manufacturers in Automotive and Growth Trajectory for Seegrid VGVs

Michigan’s competitiveness is due in part to the simple, fair, and efficient 6 percent corporate tax, and the elimination of industrial personal property taxes that will cut $372 million for businesses by 2020. Some of the businesses likely to review the merits of VGVs in 2016 include Home Depot, CVS, and Lowe’s.

Pete Chryplewicz, Seegrid Strategic Account Manager, is heading up Seegrid’s Michigan focus initiative.  Chryplewicz recently joined Seegrid to work directly with manufacturing companies looking to innovate their workflow processes and increase competitiveness with vision guided vehicles.

Seegrid is a member of Automation Alley, Michigan’s leading technology business association, connecting companies and organizations with talent, resources, and funding to accelerate innovation and fuel Southeast Michigan’s economy.
