Welcome to Shiawassee County, Michigan

Shiawassee County, Michigan, is strategically located along I-69. It is about halfway between Lansing, Michigan (home to Michigan State University) and Flint, Michigan (home to University of Michigan – Flint, and Kettering University). If you continue eastward on I-69 past Flint, Sarnia, Canada, is less than 100 miles due east of Shiawassee County. Detroit is about 90 miles southeast of Shiawassee County.

Shiawassee County brings you a central location to North American markets on the I-69 International Trade Corridor (connecting Canada with Chicago and markets beyond) with a large and productive workforce, a competitive cost of doing business and a pro-business climate.

Industries such as manufacturing, Tier 2 and Tier 3 automotive manufacturing, pollution control and agribusiness thrive here, as well as professional services firms looking to reach the Michigan/Upper Midwest markets.

And in time away from work, Shiawassee County offers rich theater, arts and museums. Professional sports teams are an easy drive away, and college sports fans root for University of Michigan’s Wolverines and Michigan State’s Spartans.
