Eaton Gets $2M for Military Hybrid Development
GALESBURG --The Eaton Vehicle Group’s efforts to build more efficient vehicles for the U.S. military is $2 million stronger, care of funding from a Department of Defense spending bill, passed in late December.
The funding was announced by U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, during a visit to the Galesburg-based division on Monday morning.
“Eaton is an integral part of our economic foundation here in southwest Michigan, and this funding is critical for job-creation as our state continues to battle soaring unemployment,” the St. Joseph County Republican said in a prepared statement. “With the continued funding for research and development through the years, Eaton’s presence in our community has grown, creating more jobs and playing a leading role in our local economy.”
