Business Opportunities

Looking To Expand Your Business?

Build New? 
There are good reasons that Pinnacle Foods, Magna, General Motors, Karegnondi Water Authority and other major expansions are underway on the I-69 International Trade Corridor. We invite existing and new businesses to see the business advantage of Michigan’s Blue Water Gateway and the city of Durand. Stretching across four counties, the area shares a common corridor along Interstate 69 and serves as a strategic commercial gateway between the Midwestern United States and Ontario, Canada. The corridor’s multi-modal transportation infrastructure offers a wide range of distribution options including Flint’s Bishop International Airport and major freeways – I-69, I-75, US-23 and I-94. Multiple rail providers include CSX and Canadian National. The Blue Water Bridge connects Port Huron, Michigan to Sarnia, Ontario, Canada.

In other words, businesses in Durand are only 90 minutes from the highest freight value border crossing in the United States!

Industrial Sites 
Visible from I-69 are 50 acres of industrial park property ready for development. The park is currently serviced with electricity and gas from Consumers Energy, and the city has made major upgrades to its water and waste treatment facilities, allowing for plenty of room for growth and development.

The availability of most modes of transportation and ease of access are major assets to such Durand manufacturers as
Simplicity Engineering and Webcor Packaging, Inc.
