Macomb County celebrates National Small Business Week. Almost 90 percent of the county’s 17,000 businesses are local industries.

Deputy Director for Planning and Economic Development Vicky Rad says the county strives to provide these businesses with what they need to grow.

“We provide a plethora of services to these companies depending on what their specific needs are, and then also kind of being the conduit or facilitator to network them to other organizations that assist small business,” she says. 

Rad says the small companies in Macomb County range from manufacturing to staffing services. She says officials are putting on low-cost local conferences on subjects that promote business growth.
