Snyder creates Automotive Industry Office

LANSING (WKZO) -- The state of Michigan now has an Automotive Industry Office.  Governor Rick Snyder has tapped Nigel Francis to lead the department, and he brings in nearly three decades of experience in the global automotive industry.

In announcing the creation of the office, Snyder noted the state is not only home to the Big Three automakers,  but also to 61 of the top 100 auto suppliers in North America and 70-percent of the auto research and development done on the continent.  In the first five months of this year, Michigan-based auto companies announced nearly 760-million dollars in new investments and expect to create another six-thousand jobs.
