Growing Saginaw Manufacturer Saving Energy and Money with Incentives from Consumers Energy


Fullerton Tool Receives Rebate Worth Over $26,000 for New Construction

Washington, D.C. – (RealEstateRama) — A family-owned tool manufacturer based in Saginaw received $26,291 in rebates from Consumers Energy today for using a program that rewards energy efficiency during new construction.

Fullerton Tool Co. received an incentive check from Consumers Energy for its use of energy-efficient measures during an expansion of the company’s main production facility. Those measures qualified for the incentive as part of Consumers Energy’s Business New Construction Program, and those measures will continue to save the company money and energy.

“We enjoy a tremendous relationship with Fullerton Tool, which provides a great example of how we can help employers lower their energy costs,” said Garrick Rochow, Consumers Energy’s vice president and chief customer officer. ‘Every day, we continue to work with Michigan businesses to find solutions to their energy needs.”

“Consumers Energy has been a great partner in helping us maximize our savings potential and continues to help us with additional savings incentives,” said Mike Maxwell, Fullerton Tool’s plant manager.

Fullerton Tool’s recent expansion included a 35,000-square-foot facility located on a 35-acre parcel within the Great Lakes Tech Park. The expansion includes manufacturing and office space, and has allowed Fullerton to bring a coating center in-house as well as increase production.

More than 1,000 businesses have participated in Consumers Energy’s Business New Construction Program, with over $7.5 million paid in incentives.

In all, Consumers Energy offers over 400 rebates that are available to businesses. Learn more
