A West Michigan-based ice cream maker is spending $9.8 million to expand its facilities.
Holland-based Hudsonville Ice Cream said last week that it is beginning an expansion of its 48th Street campus, 345 E. 48th St., in Holland this month.
The $9.8 million project is the company’s second round of facility upgrades since 2018 and includes the addition of a new 40,000-square-foot dry goods warehouse, which will enable greater production volume across Hudsonville Ice Cream’s product lines, the company said.
The project is expected to be completed this spring.
“West Michigan has been our home since the very beginning, and as we expand availability of Hudsonville Ice Cream to additional states in the Midwest, we are deeply committed to investing in our hometown and the facilities where all our innovation, development and production takes place,” said CJ Ellens, a part owner of Hudsonville Ice Cream. “With expanded facilities comes the ability to create new jobs.”
Ada-based Dan Vos Construction is the project’s contractor.
No additional hiring is planned at this time as a result of the expansion.
Lakeshore Advantage, the economic development agency that assists employers with growth opportunities in Ottawa and Allegan counties, helped connect Hudsonville Ice Cream with local resources to support its expansion.
