An expansion by a ceiling tile manufacturer in L’Anse is providing 25 more jobs to Baraga County.

A grant from the Michigan Strategic Fund of $375,000 and a tax incentive from the Village of L’Anse helped make the growth of CertainTeed possible.

The company has had an operation in Baraga County for over 70 years, with more than 60 manufacturing facilities throughout the US and Canada and more than 5,700 employees.
