Gov. Gretchen Whitmer joined the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) on Sept. 23 to announce Rivian, a manufacturer of all-electric adventure vehicles, is establishing its new Rivian Service Support Operations facility in Plymouth, MI, creating 100 new high-wage jobs and investing $4.6 million into the Plymouth facilities with support from the Michigan Strategic Fund. 

This announcement comes on the heels of Whitmer launching the MI New Economy plan the same week, as well as various electrification announcements that demonstrate Michigan continues to be the epicenter of future mobility and electrification solutions.
