Thomas Township welcomes Saginaw Control & Engineering to its Great Lakes Tech Park located on Graham Road just north of Gratiot.  On November 28, 2018 the Thomas Township Planning Commission reviewed and approved the site plan for Saginaw Control which was presented by Rick Keith of Wolgast Design Group, who is the designer on the project. 

The building will be constructed on nearly 40 acres with offices measuring 22,600 square feet and warehouse and manufacturing measuring roughly 120,000 square feet.  Business is going well for Saginaw Control & Engineering because this new construction is in addition to the existing plant location on M-47 and Gratiot in Saginaw Township.  This is considered a new plant expansion. 

The exciting project will see around 35 new employees to run the expansive new building.  The project is only the start, with future space for up to 3 more similar sized additions in the future.  The building permit was issued to Pumford Construction in February, and you can see work has started already.  It is projected that the full construction will be completed in about 10 months.
