Diversivied Synergies LLC (DSL) is expected to help create more 1,000 jobs in Detroit when its new packaging and distribution center set to be built in the Delray neighborhood reaches full operating capacity, according to an article from Visit Detroit.
“Bedrock’s announcement that Diversified Synergies will be bringing another 1,000 good paying jobs to this formerly vacant site in the Delray neighborhood is great news for Detroit. Between major employers like Stellantis, Ford’s Train Station project and now the Fort Street industrial campus, as well as others, we have attracted nearly 15,000 good paying jobs outside of our downtown and midtown area. Our team at Detroit at Work will be working closely with Diversified Synergies to help ensure that Detroit residents have access to these new employment opportunities at this new southwest Detroit employment center,” said Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan.
One of Diversivied Synergies LLC core values is a commitment to community engagement and employee investment. They promised to offer a competitive, living wage and to prioritize employee development and advancement to ensure that talent is retained in Detroit.
“In other locations across the country, finding workers is often the most challenging problem, whereas, in Detroit, there is a readily available labor pool. This packaging distribution facility is an opportunity for Bedrock and DSL to provide a substantial number of new local jobs,” said Doug Crawley, CEO of DSL. “Our goals are to pay a living wage, provide training and opportunities for career advancement and to finds ways to give back to the community. We look forward to working together to make a difference in Detroit.”
“I am excited to welcome Diversified Synergies to Detroit. This move both supports our decision to add industrial assets to our growing portfolio and highlights the need for more modern industrial facilities in Detroit. The commitment of the owners of this company to Detroit is gratifying and is evidenced by their focus on hiring from and within the city,” said Kofi Bonner, CEO of Bedrock. “What really excites me is knowing that when both our new tenants at the industrial facilities, Diversified Synergies and LM Manufacturing, are operating at near full capacities there will be almost 1,500 new hires, with well-paid sustainable jobs. As we work to increase job opportunities in Detroit, we will continue to grow our industrial base with more like-minded employers.”
