US patent office plans satellite site in Detroit
Wednesday - 1/11/2012, 1:12pm EST
DETROIT (AP) - The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office plans to open a satellite office in Detroit, its first such facility outside Washington, D.C.
The agency announced Wednesday that the 31,000 square-foot space just east of downtown will open by July. It's expected to employ 100 people in its first year.
The agency says opening new office is part of an effort to hire and keep "the nation's top professionals." It also says the new office should "provide a boost to the southeastern Michigan's innovation economy."
The patent office plans to open at least two more satellite offices during the next three years.
