Fiat Chrysler Automobiles US LLC invests in Sterling Heights plant


FCA is investing more than $166 million in three press lines at its Sterling Stamping Plant to help meet increased demand. 


According to FCA, Sterling Stamping is the largest stamping plant in the world.  It makes body panels and assemblies for vehicles such as the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Ram pickup. The new press lines are expected to begin production in the fourth quarter and parts from them will be sent to seven company facilities in the US, Mexico and Canada.  The new presses will boost the number of stampings produced by 75,000 per day, amounting to 20 million in a year. The plant currently produces 62 million stampings each year. 

The plant employs 2,292 workers and no new jobs are expected as part of the investment. 







Genisys Credit Union Recognized for Exceptional Fiduciary Responsibility


Genisys Credit Union, which provides services to anyone who lives or works in the Lower Peninsula of Michigan, ranked as one of the healthiest credit unions in the nation.


In May, DepositAccounts.com recognized credit unions that have shown exceptional fiduciary responsibility in its 2015 edition of the Top 200 Healthiest Credit Unions in America. Genisys Credit Union ranked 87th out of the 6,655 federally insured credit unions in the United States. Each institution was graded on a number of factors - including capitalization, deposit growth, and loan to reserve ratios - in order to determine a comprehensive health score.

"We are very honored to receive this outstanding recognition from DepositAccounts.com," said Jackie Buchanan, Genisys Credit Union President and CEO.  "We strive to provide our members with great products and services to help them achieve their financial goals."



March of Dimes Announces its ITC Golf Classic, presented by WJR and Frank Beckmann


The March of Dimes is excited to announce and thank their Title Sponsor, ITC Holdings, for their generous support of this event.  The 2015 event will again be held at the beautiful Indianwood Golf and Country Club in Lake Orion, hosted by WJR and Frank Beckman.  Celebrity guest joining us this year include Paul Gross, Neal Rubin, Nolan Finley, and alumni from the Detroit Tigers, Red Wings and Lions.  





The Detroit Zoological Society (DZS), in partnership with the Michigan Science Center, presents "Penguins:  A Photographic Expedition" through Sept. 6.  Located in the exhibit gallery in the Ford Education Center, the exhibition is open during regular Detroit Zoo hours and is free with admission.


The exhibition features 120 photographs by J.J. L'Heureux depicting penguins in the icy wilderness of Antarctica.  A native of Detroit, L'Heureux first visited Antarctica in 2000 and became so intrigued with the environment that she returns every year to document the Antarctic wildlife for her photography collection. 


 "We are pleased to showcase this exhibition as we move closer to completion of the Polk Penguin Conservation Center," said Ron Kagan, DZS executive director and CEO.

Construction continues on the 33,000-square-foot penguin facility at the Detroit Zoo, which will be the largest of its kind in the world when it opens in early 2016.
