Cintas Corporation Investing $17 Million To Expand In Delta Township

DELTA TOWNSHIP, Mich. – Delta Township, the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC), and the Lansing Economic Area Partnership (LEAP) announced the expansion of Cintas Corporation in Delta Township today. Cintas Corporation, founded in 1968, is a leading provider of corporate identity uniform programs, providing entrance and safety mats, restroom supplies, promotional products, first aid and fire production products, and industrial carpet and tile cleaning.

“Cintas is committed to taking great care of our customers and providing an excellent work environment for our employee-partners in the Lansing area,” said Thomas R. Boik, Cintas local Branch Manager. “We are also committed to being a good corporate citizen and providing support to the local community.”

Cintas currently has more than 40,000 employees at more than 500 locations worldwide, and has outgrown their existing space in Lansing. The company has a facility in the Lansing area, but has outgrown the space due to continued growth and was examining sites elsewhere in Michigan and other states. Cintas plans to purchase adjacent land in Delta Township and add a new commercial/industrial cleaning facility that will also include office space.

“We are very happy to have Cintas continued commitment to Delta Township. This extraordinary investment in a new building and equipment and the new jobs it will create, are a great benefit to our community,” Delta Township Supervisor Kenneth R. Fletcher. “Cintas represents a truly unique business that adds to our economic diversity in Delta and we couldn’t be more excited.”

The project is expected to generate a total capital investment of $17 million and create 70 new jobs. In conjunction with the project, Cintas has been awarded a $350,000 Michigan Business Development Program performance-based grant by the Michigan Strategic Fund (MSF).

“Cintas is an important employer in the Lansing area, and the company’s investment in Delta Township means good jobs for Michigan residents that could well have gone to other states,” said Jeff Mason, CEO of the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, the state’s chief marketing and business attraction arm that administers programs and performs due diligence on behalf of the MSF. “It is thanks to many public and private partners that this project is taking place, and we are pleased to support that collaboration.”

Cintas chose Michigan over competing sites in California, Florida, New Jersey, New York, Tennessee, and Wisconsin; and will receive expedited permitting in support of the project from Delta Township.

“Cintas has a long history in the Lansing region and we’re happy to be able to support their continued growth,” said Bob Trezise, President and CEO of LEAP. “LEAP and the MEDC initially spent much effort to convince Cintas of the merits of Michigan and especially the Lansing region, as a choice location. We thank our friends at the MEDC and Delta Township for closing out this important deal in Delta Township.”
