Creates customized data to promote Michigan's automobility leadership

New data point

Michigan's automobility leadership extends far beyond the 375 automotive research and design facilities often cited in industry reports. The Chamber's research team compiled data showing that more than 2,200 facilities in Michigan conduct research, design, engineering, testing and validation further reinforcing that the state's industry expertise reaches from concept to consumer.

The new data point provides a clear understanding of the true automotive technical ecosystem in our state and definitively concludes that Michigan is the epicenter of mobility innovation.
