    CLOVER’s ,CARTRIDGE-ARE-US TO EXPAND LOCATION
    A bad economy never seems to have an impact on Ithaca’s Cartridges Are Us.
    The
    supplier of ink jet cartridges is expanding yet again.Greater Gratiot
    Development President Don Schurr, along with CAU’s president Steve
    Iocco, requested and received from the Gratiot County Board of
    Commissioners Tuesday more land in Ithaca’s South Industrial Park for
    that expansion.Iocco said he met with the board of Clover Technologies,
    CAU’s parent company, to explain why an expansion would be better in
    Ithaca than in Europe.The company has increased its share of sales in
    Europe, he said, noting that some members believed the expansion should
    take place there.But Iocco said he outlined the company’s successes in
    Ithaca and the deal was sealed.”We can even outbid the Chinese
    companies,” he said.Iocco said he wants to add on about 30,000 square
    feet and told the board that 25 new jobs would open up immediately,
    bringing the number of 340 employees to about 365.”And it will probably
    be north of 400 soon,” he said.

    He and Don Schurr have been
    meeting so that the expanded plant can be operational in the spring.The
    park, not now platted, would need to be surveyed, Schurr said, pointing
    out that CAU would pay for those costs.After the meeting, Iocco was
    asked why, if he could outbid the Chinese, other U.S. manufacturers
    couldn’t.Iocco credited Clover Technologies’ robotics and advanced
    equipment.”No one else has that automation,” he said. “And we dream.
    We’re challenged when we’re told, “No, you can’t do that.”Schurr also
    noted that at a meeting with the Foreign Trade Zone recently in Lansing,
    Cartridges Are Us was listed as a “company to watch.”
