Michigan has the infrastructure and the talent to make us a leader in defense. We’re home to the nation’s largest ground vehicle defense companies and TARDEC, the nation’s top research facility for the development of ground vehicle technology, robotics and mobility. We also have a higher concentration of engineers and industrial designers than any other state in the nation. Michigan’s business climate is one of the most favorable in the Midwest. We eliminated personal property tax, which significantly reduces costs for companies that have expensive capital investments in equipment. And we’re consistently ranked among the top 10 states for major new and expanding facilities. In fact, about two-thirds of all Michigan businesses would recommend our state as a place to start a business.
