Miniature Custom Manufacturing, LLC, established in Galesburg in 2007, specializes in highly automated injection molding for high-volume injected parts for many industries, from automotive to medical. MCM continues to secure new customers and has several product launches planned for 2019 and 2020, requiring an expansion of 24,000 square feet to its current facility in the village of Vicksburg and conversion of its warehouse into a second manufacturing facility. The project is expected to generate $3 million in private investment and create 37 jobs, resulting in a $175,000 Michigan Business Development Program performance-based grant. Michigan was chosen over a competing site in Indiana.

“We are excited to partner with the MEDC to bring jobs and growth to the state of Michigan and the village of Vicksburg,” said MCM Owner Kevin Murphy.

The village of Vicksburg has approved a property tax abatement in support of the project. Individuals interested in careers with Miniature Custom Manufacturing should visit .

The 37 new jobs and $3 million investment coming to Vicksburg are a testament to Miniature Custom Manufacturing’s ability to both lead and support new products in the marketplace,” said Ron Kitchens, CEO and senior partner of Southwest Michigan First. “Today, we celebrate with the company’s leadership, state of Michigan and village of Vicksburg who partnered with our project team to bring this project to successful conclusion.”
