CAPAC — As major construction work nears completion at the Keihin Michigan Manufacturing plant, crews have begun to move in and assemble the plant's first machines.
Last week, Keihin received delivery of its first injector base assembly line from Dane Systems, L.L.C. and a molding machine from Ube Equipment, plant manager Kevin Mitchell said.
The second molding machine will arrive next week.
"Our front offices are on schedule to be completed by the end of January," Mitchell said.
