Dura Mold, a plastic injection mold and die cast manufacturer, announced today its expansion at their Stevensville facility, in Lake Charter Township. The company is making a $1.4 million investment in an 8,000 square foot addition; creating seven new jobs.

The Business Development team at Cornerstone Alliance, Berrien County’s lead economic development agency, led efforts for Dura Mold’s expansion. Cathy Tilley, Cornerstone Alliance Business Development Manager, presented the tax abatement on Dura Mold’s behalf which was approved today by the Lake Charter Township Trustees.

“Dura Mold is another example of a thriving business expanding in Berrien County,” said Greg Vaughn, Chief Operating Officer and VP, Business Development for Cornerstone Alliance. “When existing industry commits to expand and grow in Michigan’s Great Southwest, the competitive landscape grows stronger, and there are more opportunities for Berrien County residents. We applaud Lake Charter Township for their work in making Dura Mold’s expansion a reality.”

Lake Charter Township Supervisor, John Gast said, “Lake Charter Township fully supports Dura Mold’s expansion. Dura Mold is a long-standing company, and their success is a win for all of us.”

The expansion is expected to be completed by late March 2018.

“We are quite fortunate to have a combination of a talented, hard-working staff and loyal customers,” said Dura Mold President, Frank Bock. “As our customers continue to challenge our spectrum of capabilities, our team becomes more creative and innovative while continuing to deliver a quality product.”
