WYOMING, Mich. (WOOD) - The former General Motors stamping plant -- now known as Site 36 -- has secured its first tenant.
Kendall Electric Incorporated’s J.O. Galloup subsidiary plans to break ground this fall on a new manufacturing, wholesale and distribution facility.
The target move-in date is set at late 2014 for the 100,000-square-foot facility in Wyoming.
The facility will be located on more than seven acres along Clay Avenue and will be home to around 95 employees.
Kendall officials said the relocation will allow the company to consolidate two current facilities in Grand Rapids into a larger building.
Wyoming City Manager Curtis Holt said the company will bring a lot of money to the city.
“I think the best part about this or one of the best parts, besides jobs, is that we're taking a previously under-utilized site that was a parking lot... we're putting a new facility in so that's truly adding new investments to our city,” he said.
City officials expect to announce a second tenant for Site 36 sometime this fall.
