New factory will bring more than 100 jobs to Gaylord

OTSEGO COUNTY, Mich., (WPBN/WGTU) -- A new factory opening up in northern Michigan will bring more than 100 jobs to the area.

NAI, which manufactures fiber optic and copper cable assemblies and harnesses, plans on opening a factory in Gaylord.

The new factory will represent NAI's return of manufacturing to the U.S. and the Midwest.

“Our Solutions Center in Troy, Michigan, as well as our facilities in Hermosillo, Mexico, Suzhou, China and Nogales, Arizona, will provide engineering, manufacturing and logistics support to the Gaylord plant, optimizing our assets and leveraging our synergies. We are excited to become part of the Gaylord community,” stated Jon Jensen, President and CEO, NAI.

The new facility is 25,000 square-feet and will begin production in June 2018.

The company plans to hire 40 new employees in 2018 and reach a total of 125 in 2019.

The new plant will produce various interconnect assembly solutions, eventually including electro-mechanical assemblies such as box and panel builds.

The Gaylord facility will serve all three NAI customer segments: medical, industrial technology, and telecom.

NAI says they chose Michigan as a location because of its high concentration of engineers and other talents, supportive business climate, excellent schools and optimal logistics.
