Morrison Industries, which makes steel shipping containers for the manufacturing industry and custom shipping racks for automakers, is growing, and opening a second manufacturing plant in Novi.
Production at the 50,000-square-foot Morrison Industries North is on track to begin in January. The goal is to start production with 15 to 20 employees and aim for 100 employees “over the next 24 months,” the company says. It’ll be looking to hire in the following jobs: welder, fabricator, maintenance and general office staff.
“The central location in the metro area allows us to provide the most convenient access to our customers, with locations in both the northern and southern regions,” the company says.
Morrison Industries, founded in 1979, is based in Morrison, Tennessee, and counts GM, Mercedes-Benz, Tesla, and Toyota as some of its clients.
“We’re not a stranger to growth and expansion,” CEO Jacob Wilson says in a memo posted on Morrison Industries’ website. “Over the last 25 years, our family-owned company has grown to be one of the most trusted names in auto-rack manufacturing. We are excited to better position ourselves to serve both current and new customers.”
