LANSING, Mich. — State Sen. Ken Horn, R-Frankenmuth, chairman of the Senate Economic Development and International Investment Committee, issued the following statement Thursday in response to Daimler North America Corp. announcing it will be increasing its presence in Michigan by relocating its North American headquarters in the state.

“It’s great to hear that Daimler North America is centralizing its operations here in Michigan. The state is continuing to make a strong comeback, and drawing employers like this is proof that we are moving forward.

“This comes at the same time that Michigan’s unemployment rate has again dropped and is now at 5.1 percent, the lowest since 2001. We welcome Daimler North America and hope to see more moves like this in the future.”
