Clayton & McKervey Proud to Support the American Center for Mobility
Clayton & McKervey is pleased to announce it will provide financial and accounting consulting to the newly funded American Center for Mobility, working in collaboration with the board of directors and the Michigan Economic Development Fund (MEDC).
Located at the Willow Run site in Ypsilanti Township, the center will help accelerate advanced mobility vehicle development safety while bringing economic opportunity to southeast Michigan and the United States. The MEDC previously announced approval of a $2,999,900 million performance-based grant and $100 equity investment in funds to support the American Center for Mobility, from the Michigan Strategic Fund (MSF). On Tuesday, July 26, 2016, the MEDC announced that “the MSF approved a $17 million investment for the finalization of the acquisition of the land at Willow Run, operations and to facilitate the design and construction of phase one of a state-of-the-art global center for research, development and testing for automated vehicles.”
“We are honored to be working with the state of Michigan to help advance the future of our economy through next-generation vehicles,” said Clayton & McKervey Principal – Assurance Julie Killian. “Clayton & McKervey is excited to share our knowledge with the leaders of this visionary work.”
