Top Companies in Southwest Michigan
From Fortune 500 companies to two-person start-ups, Southwest Michigan is home to some of the world’s most innovative companies and has been for more than a century. This is the place where the modern pharmaceutical pill was invented; where Dr. Homer Stryker imagined the oscillating device that easily cuts casts off; where the yellow-checkered cab first hit the streets; and where the first corn flake was first boxed.
Southwest Michigan’s commitment to an innovation-based economy has long been an attractor for many foreign-based companies. In fact, almost 40 German-based companies have a Southwest Michigan location, as well as other numerous countries representing Asia, Canada and Europe. In confirmation to their commitment to our region, within the past two years, several of these companies have made significant investment here.
