Technology company plans expansion into Plymouth Township

A technology company is planning a $1.3 million expansion in Plymouth Township that could bring 48 new jobs to the area.
BEET, Inc., a company that creates technology to detect line failures and potential issues, will be implementing technology across 13 new facilities throughout the United States, including the Plymouth Township expansion. The company technology is implemented through ENVISION software, which has helped BEET build a strong customer base in the automotive industry, noted a spokesman from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation. The company has also started expanding into non-automotive industrial sectors to diversify business.

The company has received a $384,000 Michigan Business Development Program performance-based grant to offset some of the planned Plymouth Township expansion.
In addition to the state grant, Plymouth Township officials have agreed to promote the company whenever possible in support of the project and new positions.
“Plymouth Township is proud to have BEET in our community. This innovative tech company is investing $1.3M and plans to create up to 48 new, high-paying jobs. They're a great partner and we are working to see them thrive,” said Plymouth Township Supervisor Kurt L. Heise.
“This is just further proof of what successful IT companies already know. Wayne County offers the top tier IT talent needed to compete globally,” said Wayne County Executive Warren C. Evans. “I commend Beet Analytics Technology for increasing their employment and investing in advanced training for their employees.”
