BATTLE CREEK, Mich., Feb. 13, 2023 — Ford Motor Co. announced today that it plans to build an electric vehicle battery plant in Marshall. The plant represents a $3.5 billion investment and will create about 2,500 jobs. State Rep. Jim Haadsma (D-Battle Creek) issued the following statement after the announcement: 

“This is wonderful news not only for the city of Marshall but for all of Calhoun County. A project of this magnitude will create further investments and job opportunities as businesses and other infrastructure springs up to support the plant and its employees. This victory is the direct result of the economic development work Democrats in the Legislature have done in the last few years, and I am so proud to see it come to fruition.”
