“We’ve received additional business and we’re running out of room,” CMA President John Geneva said. “We are in the preliminary stages of plant expansion. We’re not sure if it’s going to happen this year or in the spring. ... We’re taking a step at a time.”
CMA employs 50 people. It makes and stamps metal parts for medical, transportation, lighting and appliance industries, among others, Geneva said.
“Everything is custom-made,” he said.
While many companies have been drastically hit by the economy, CMA has weathered the economic downturn fairly well, according to Geneva.

The recently approved IFT exemptions are for six years, according to Denise Chalifoux, the township’s assessor and finance director.
