Reaching for overdrive

A revised IHS Automotive production forecast for 2014 suggests automotive suppliers could see more orders than originally expected.

A senior executive at the private equity-backed company that bought a piece of Johnson Controls Inc.’s automotive interiors business in June says it plans to invest at its base of operations in West Michigan.

When Dan Scheid and Aaron Zeigler took over the family-owned Zeigler Auto Group more than a decade ago, they knew they wanted to position the Kalamazoo-based dealership group for growth.

A supplier to West Michigan’s growing craft beverage industry plans to become the first company on this side of the state to take advantage of Michigan’s new crowdfunding law.

Many questions remain about what Johnson Controls Inc.’s spinning out its automotive interiors division to a Chinese-controlled joint venture will mean for operations in West Michigan.

West Michigan e-cigarette company Victory Electronic Cigarette Co. has filed a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission to raise up to $149.5 million in a follow-on offering of its publicly traded shares.

Johnson Controls Inc. announced today that it planned to spin out its $3 billion (annual revenues) automotive interiors business with a significant manufacturing and engineering presence in West Michigan into a new joint venture led by a Chinese firm.
