Cameron Tool Expansion!
CAMC member Cameron Tool, a local tool and die maker, is planning a $931,000 expansion of its facility on Bassett Avenue in Lansing. The Tier 2 auto supplier plans to add 5,500 square feet and reorganize its existing space to accommodate a 20-ton crane and create a new machine bay. The company has more than doubled its sales during the past three years.  

“The state of the tooling industry is just great,” said Tracy Selden, president of Cameron Tool.  

The expansion will allow Cameron Tool to add 10 employees to the plant’s 75-member workforce.
