The Michigan Defense Center is an operation of the Michigan Economic Development Corporation focused on the support, protection and growth of Michigan’s defense and homeland security missions and the Michigan businesses that support our nation’s security and our military’s safety.
The Michigan Defense Center is the State of Michigan’s lead voice on the defense and homeland security economy and guides the state’s policies and programs to protect and grow this important sector of the economy. The MDC acts as a liaison between the state and defense interests in the federal government, defense agencies, the defense industry, academia and the defense community and supporting organizations.
Nearly 4,000 Michigan businesses are currently serving the defense industry and there’s room for more. Companies are getting involved in a range of projects, including information technology solutions, construction services and generating energy-saving ideas that can be applied in the field.
