An Illinois engineering firm has expanded into West Michigan.
WBK Engineering said yesterday that it has opened an office in Battle Creek, at 14250 Beadle Lake Rd.
The firm offers a range of services: civil, water resources, transportation, structural, landscape architecture, planning and land development.
WBK hopes to serve western and central Michigan out of the Battle Creek office.
Justian Crane will lead the firm's Michigan operation and be the office’s lone employee for now, and WBK leadership expects to grow the operation within the year.
Until the team expands, employees from other offices will provide services to the West Michigan market.
“We believe that Battle Creek is poised for growth and transition, and WBK hopes to be at the leading edge of contributing to and supporting that growth,” said Jennifer Ryan, marketing coordinator, WBK Engineering.
WBK has more than 40 employees at its offices in St. Charles and Aurora, Illinois.
