Alternative energy firm NextEnergy
recently hired three more people in its Industry Services Department. They will help Michigan's manufacturers diversify into the alternative energy market, making parts for things like wind turbines and solar panels. The idea is that facilitating this diversification will help save and create more manufacturing jobs in Metro Detroit.
NextEnergy also has hired four people recently to fill human resources, business development and technology development positions.
"We're growing with the alternative energy industry and we're adding staff to keep up with it," says Mark Beyer, director of communications for NextEnergy.
The company now employs 22 people and one independent contractor from its headquarters in Detroit’s TechTown business incubator in New Center. The firm was one of TechTown's first start-ups when it opened in 2002.
