GRAND RAPIDS, MI
Purchased in 2006, the former factory occupied by Siemens Dematic/Smith Industries was reimagined for its next use. With the help of tax incentives from the City of Wyoming, Franklin Partners was able to retain Roof-lifters, a company known for their system to physically raise commercial roofs. This custom building modification increased the ceiling height in 70% of the 328,000 SF warehouse space from 16’ to 32’, making the asset an ideal location, for ABC Undercar.
Additional modifications were made to the facility that improved the heating, cooling and plumbing systems and the overall site.
