A Lansing company has announced a major expansion.

Niowave plans to build a $200 million production facility at the Capitol Region airport.

The facility will produce radio-isotopes for use in medical testing.

Terry Grimm is Niowave’s president. He says locating the facility at Lansing’s airport will help with national and international distribution.

“[With] Close proximity to the airplanes. We can quickly get them to the hospitals and processing facilities around the country and even around the world,” says Grimm.
