(Midland, Michigan) Pipe, valve and fitting distributor Macomb Group plans to expand operations here. The company recently acquired a 25,000 square foot facility less than a mile from its current operation and will add employees as it adds product lines.
“(This will) facilitate some moves into product categories that are successful components of other Macomb locations, but due to space constraints we have been reluctant to pursue in the mid-Michigan market,” said Scott Henegar, operations manager for the Midland facility. “These moves will require not only warehouse staff but also sales and support staff as well.”
Macomb officials are still developing a budget to renovate and equip the new facility.
“We are seeing an emphasis in the commercial and institutional spending that is a direct result of the stimulus money being pumped into the state economies,” Henegar said. “These market segments have complimenting but different product needs that require a substantial investment of inventory and space to properly serve our targeted customer base.”
The company also plans to spend about $500,000 to renovate its existing offices in Midland.
Macomb is a distributor of pipe, valve, and fittings along with related products such as plumbing, heating, boilers, instrumentation, steam products, hose assembly, AWWA, fire protection and fabrication. The coverage area for Macomb Group- Midland spans the Tri-City area of Saginaw, Bay City, and Midland and its service area extends into the Thumb area of the state and west into Mt. Pleasant and Cadillac.
