A maker of power supply products for multiple industries has completed a roughly $3-million expansion and renovation.

Wolverine Building Group in Grand Rapids said last week that it completed the job for RoMan Manufacturing in Wyoming, which specializes in the production of AC and DC power sources.

The project began last October and took about three months to complete.

RoMan plans to add about 20 jobs as part of the expansion.

The expansion of the industrial space at RoMan was needed to support growth at the company’s welding-equipment subsidiary, IRCO Automation in Burlington, Ontario, said Adam Tuffs, project manager, Wolverine Building Group.

The project

Wolverine renovated RoMan’s pair of two-story office buildings, located at 901 47th St. SW and 861 47th St. SW, totaling about 9,000 square feet.

Wolverine put in new flooring, drywall, lighting and finishes and completed mechanical, electrical and plumping work, creating a “more modern look and feel.”

One of RoMan’s industrial buildings also received a 15,000-square-foot expansion, making the building 31,150 square feet.

“Repeat customer”

“Our employees are excited by our growth, and we appreciate Wolverine’s efforts to help us achieve our vision,” said Robert Roth, CEO, RoMan Manufacturing.

RoMan has worked with Wolverine Building Group on several projects since 1982.

“RoMan has been a great repeat customer of ours,” Tuffs said. “The phasing of this project was challenging, but they understand the construction process and that makes working with them a pleasure.”
