Construction is underway for a new Grand Rapids location for Alro Plastics.
Alro Plastics will occupy 65,000 square feet of a 160,000-square-foot facility located along M-6 in the Gerald R. Ford International Airport region in a new industrial park that features easy access to highways.
The new location will house Alro’s full plastics operation, including head offices, assembling, manufacturing and warehousing.
Robert Grooters Development Company recently broke ground on the site as a build-to-suit project for Alro. Wolverine Building Group will begin construction as soon as Dykema Excavating completes the site preparation.
The project is expected to be completed in spring 2021.
Alro Plastics was founded in 1987 in Jackson to provide Alro Steel’s existing customers with a wide range of plastic products.
