Auto-Owners Insurance to Expand Michigan Headquarters

September 24, 2009

Auto-Owners Insurance Co. says it will build a new corporate complex when it expands its Michigan headquarters.

The $105.3 million project will be near the company’s Delta Township headquarters in Eaton County, just west of Lansing. It would add a three-story, 250,000 square-foot building on 143 acres.

Most of the land was bought from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan earlier this year.

Once Blue Cross Blue Shield’s lease ends in 2012, all or some of the Blue Cross buildings will be demolished to make room for the complex. The insurer says the expansion could create 800 jobs over 10 years with an average salary of $43,000.

The company is seeking up to $26 million in tax incentives for the project.
