2017 Celebration of Regional Growth Recipients:

Eaton Rapids Medical Center’s (ERMC) $6 million expansion reflects its critical role as the leading healthcare provider and third largest employer in the city of Eaton Rapids. ERMC received a Celebration of Regional Growth award in recognition of its continued investment in the community, including the most recent 25,000 square foot addition. The expansion will house the Eaton Rapids Medical Center Family Practice, Redicare, Physical Therapy, Sleep Center and Behavioral Health departments.

The Gillespie Company. Lansing’s east side has a proud history that reflects the traditional roots of its hard-working residents and business owners. It is also an area that is in the midst of a transformation that is at the heart of the revitalization of the Michigan Avenue corridor. The transition from the memories of the past and the hopes of the future is a difficult balancing act to navigate. No one understands that better than developer Scott Gillespie, a native of the area whose company has and continues to build several groundbreaking projects that are reshaping the character of the neighborhood.

LoAnn Oils. A family owned and operated business for 55 years, LorAnn Oils originally bottled and distributed about 8 to 10 core essential oils such as peppermint and clove. Distribution was originally limited to pharmacies. Over the years, the business has expanded its product offerings and they now sell to a wide variety of retailers, manufacturers, health practitioners and home consumers. Today, the company services over 30,000 customers in 45 countries. LorAnn Oils is being recognized with CORG’s International Trade Award.

Pratt & Whitney’s development of its geared turbofan (GTF) engine is revolutionary in the aerospace industry. The new technology has advanced a 14 percent fuel burn savings and is 79 percent quieter. An integral part of the geared turbo fans are the fan blades produced in Lansing. With the need for more of these fan blades, Pratt and Whitney is expanding its south Lansing operation, meaning even more jobs. The Company is being recognized with a CORG award for its $97 million investment in a 93,000-square-foot facility adding to its existing GTF fan blade production line.
