Company thrives on U.P. work ethic

Posted: July 22, 2008

L’Anse — A L’Anse company is bucking the downward trend of manufacturing and is proving that by using the work ethic of Upper Michigan, you can grow your business.

L’Anse Manufacturing uses precision machines to modify parts for 21 businesses around the country.  Some of their parts are used in NASCAR vehicles and military weapons.

Although they’re far away from most of their customers, the owners say their employees high productivity levels make it worth it for them to be located in L’Anse.

“We have a product that we’re directly competing for with an Asian company and our productivity levels are such that allows our customer to be successful and retain business stateside,” co-owner and president Mark Massicotte said.

The owners are also looking to double their working space, increase gross sales by 20% and add a couple more jobs this year.

“Company thrives on U.P. work ethic.” WLUCTV6: 22 May 2008.
