Holland Township Company Celebrates Expansion Through Cooperation


HOLLAND TWP., MI (WHTC) - The Detroit Tigers may not be hitting many curve balls these days, but a local contractor was able to handle a tough one in order to get a construction project done on time.

Lakewood Construction was apparently up against it last month when Lamar Construction, who was retained to provide steel for a 40 thousand square foot expansion of JR Automation’s plant on New Holland Street, abruptly shut down operations and filed for bankruptcy liquidation. Lakewood officials were able to bring six Lamar workers on board to help finish the 1.5 million-dollar project by the August 5th deadline.

JR Automation, a custom equipment maker, needed the expansion to accommodate what company officials called “time sensitive work that exceeded our capacity.” The firm worked with Lakeshore Advantage and Lakewood Construction in this effort.
