Comstock Township, MI — Forman Glass, LLC, a residential and commercial glass glazing company, plans to relocate its current operations from Fort Wayne, Indiana to Comstock Township, where it will construct a new 25,200-square-foot facility that will include warehousing, fabrication and front office space.
The company has outgrown its current facility in Indiana, where it manufactures frames for both its Michigan and Indiana customers, and has chosen Southwest Michigan for the site of its new facility. The project is expected to generate 20 new jobs and a capital investment of nearly $2 million, resulting in a $100,000 Michigan Business Development Program performance-based grant. Comstock Township has also offered a property tax abatement in support of the project.
“Southwest Michigan First welcomes Forman Glass to our region. We look forward to the expansion of employment opportunities and manufacturing expertise that these 20 new jobs will bring to Comstock Township,” said Ron Kitchens, chief executive officer and senior partner of Southwest Michigan First. “We thank our partners at Forman Glass, Comstock Township and Michigan Economic Development Corporation for their support throughout this combined project effort.”
Forman Glass, LLC provides both commercial and residential clients with a range of glass glazing services including design assistance to modern fabrication. For information, visit www.formanglass.com.
