St. Clair County manufacturer, P.J. Wallbank Springs, Inc., is once again expanding its operations in the Port Huron Industrial Park. The company is investing $2.4 in new equipment and will be creating 40 additional new jobs to meet business demands of new contracts awarded.
P.J. Wallbank Springs, Inc., founded in 1982, is the global leader in clutch return technology, specializing in spring pack design and manufacturing for automatic transmissions. An engineering-focused company, the organization started by designing and building its own proprietary manufacturing equipment to produce its spring packs, a strategy it still utilizes today. The company is a tier one and tier two supplier to companies in South America, Canada, Mexico, Europe, and China. The company currently exports more than 50 percent of its sales outside of the United States.
The company is being awarded a Michigan Business Development grant of $205,880 to assist with its expansion growth. This funding is an increase to the company’s original 2016 expansion grant of $350,000. The previous expansion has grown beyond the original project scope due to new business contracts awarded. Michigan was chosen for the expansion over competing sites in Germany and China.
