Delta Township, Mich., the Michigan Economic Development Corporation and the Lansing Economic Area Partnership have announced the expansion of Cintas Corporation (Cintas) in Delta Township.
Founded in 1968, Cintas is a leading provider of corporate-identity uniform programs: providing entrance and safety mats, restroom supplies, first aid and fire production products, promotional products and more.
Currently, there are more than 40,000 people employed at Cintas at more than 500 worldwide locations. Cintas has a facility in the Lansing area but has outgrown the space and was looking at new space elsewhere in Michigan. Cintas plans to purchase adjacent land in Delta Township, as well as a new commercial/industrial cleaning facility that will also include office space.
The project is expected to generate a total capital investment of $17 million and 70 new jobs. Recently, Cintas was also awarded a $350,000 Michigan Business Development Program performance-based grant by the Michigan Strategic Fund.
“We are very happy to have Cintas continued commitment to Delta Township,” said Delta Township Supervisor Kenneth R. Fletcher. “This extraordinary investment in a new building and equipment and the new jobs it will create are a great benefit to our community.”
Michigan was chosen by Cintas over competing sites in California, Florida, New Jersey, New York, Tennessee and Wisconsin. The company will receive expedited permitting in support of the project from Delta Township.
“Cintas is committed to taking great care of our customers and providing an excellent work environment for our employee-partners in the Lansing area,” local Brand Manager Thomas R. Boik said. “We are also committed to being a good corporate citizen and providing support to the local community.”
