PONTIAC, Mich., Oct. 7, 2021 — The Michigan Economic Development Corp. (MEDC) announced a business expansion with LHP Engineering Solutions in Pontiac. The project expects to generate a total capital investment of $3.8 million and create 100 high-wage jobs in Pontiac with the support of a $500,000 Jobs Ready Michigan performance-based grant.
“I am so proud to call Pontiac my home,” said state Rep. Brenda Carter (D-Pontiac). “And I am so glad that LHP sees what I see in this city and decided to create the next generation of technological solutions around the vehicles of the future right here in Michigan. I look forward to seeing how this investment will boost our economy, as well as automotive research and development in our community.”
LHP provides engineering and technology solutions for the automotive, aerospace, medical and other related industries. The company recently restructured to grow technology solutions around autonomous vehicles, electric vehicles, connected vehicles and related technologies. To accommodate its new growth, LHP plans to repurpose its existing engineering center in Pontiac into an electric vehicle, autonomous and advanced driver assistance system test lab that will include the development of advanced engineering training, autonomous vehicle training and EV controls engineering training.
Pontiac was chosen for the project over competing sites in California and Indiana.
