Sanctus, LLC (dba Shift Digital), headquartered in the city of Birmingham, is a digital marketing and technology solutions company that services automotive clients. The company has secured new contracts and plans to expand in new offices in downtown Birmingham. The project will generate a total capital investment of nearly $2.3 million and create 93 jobs, resulting in a $465,000 Michigan Business Development Program performance-based grant. Michigan was chosen over a competing site in California. The city of Birmingham has offered support to the project in the form of a recruitment venue for an event related to the project.
