Ace Electronics, a maker of wiring for military vehicles, plans to expand it facilities in Michigan. See a story here. This is due to an increase in the orders they are getting from the US military. The company made automotive wiring products but now are doing a substantial expansion to support their military contracts. Military vehicles, even the humble HUMVEE, are getting more and more complicated electronics to include remote control turrets that are requiring more sophisticated wiring harnesses and installations. These are much like those for aircraft and since most of them are almost handmade they require skilled labor. Ace feels that this is available in Michigan due to the downturn in the auto business.
