Japanese auto suppler could add 400 Michigan jobs

Lead in text: 
A Japanese auto supplier might hire 400 new workers in Michigan. The Detroit Free Press reports that Denso could add manufacturing and engineering jobs at its Battle Creek and Southfield plants that make radiators and air conditioning units. The company will make the move if tax incentives are approved by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation and by local governments. A spokesman from Denso International America says Michigan’s Right-to-Work law won’t affect the company’s choice.
Denso International America Inc. announced Tuesday plans to invest $750 million in the U.S., creating more than 1,200 jobs, including more than 400 in Michigan. The automotive supplier announced the four-year plan at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
