GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.—A Grand Rapids metal stamping plant is changing hands.
GR Spring & Stamping is being bought up by Gill Industries, an auto supplier that’s been in the Grand Rapids community for 50 years. The combined company will employ more than 1,500 people at facilities in eight locations, including Michigan.
"The combination strengthens the competitive position and long-term future of two Grand Rapids companies. Both companies have been part of the community for 50 years and we remain committed to it," says Gill CEO Richard Perreault.
Gill Industries was founded in 1964 and is located at 5271 Plainfield Ave. NE in Plainfield Township. GR Spring & Stamping was established in 1960 and has two facilities in Michigan, at 706 Bond Ave. in Grand Rapids and 2170 Avastar Parkway in Walker.
