Johnson Controls Inc. will invest $16.9 million to expand two of its JCIM auto interiors plants near Monroe, Mich.

Michigan officials announced the project at two JCIM sites in Frenchtown Township, saying that the company — with automotive offices based in Plymouth, Mich. — decided to expand there rather than at competing sites in Ohio.

The auto supplier expects to create up to 182 jobs with the project. It will receive an $800,000 performance-based grant from the state and a property tax abatement from Frenchtown Township.

Specifics on the expansion were not immediately available. JCIM is the manufacturing division of JCI created by the company in 2008 after it purchased assets of its key supplier, Plastech Engineered Products Inc.
