About This Meeting
Manufacturing companies who invest in inner cities help create sustainable jobs and that will lead to the revival of the American middle class, Shahid Khan, President & CEO of Flex-N-Gate, told the Detroit Economic Club on Tuesday.
Khan recently opened a state-of-the-art plant in Detroit with help from city leaders to meet the needs of U.S. automakers – and change the lives of area residents.
“What the Mayor is doing for the city is an inspiration and if anyone were to ask me what brought the city back, I would say Mayor Duggan,” said Khan. “It would have been a lot cheaper for me if he had not been in the office, but last year we launched the state-of-the-art factory. I knew it was going to be hard, but it is amazing. We have over 600 employees and their families have changed in a good way.”
