The grand opening caps off a nearly two-year-long construction and renovation project that added 56,000 square feet of new manufacturing, office, and R&D space. The new building and renovated facility also feature energy-efficient lighting, heating, air conditioning and manufacturing systems.

“Blackmer has been manufacturing at this location on Century Avenue in Grand Rapids since 1925,” said Lara Kauchak, general manager for PSG Grand Rapids. “Having outgrown our space for machining and assembly, this expansion helps us support our customers in industrial, defense and energy markets, and creates more jobs for our community.”

The expansion of the PSG Grand Rapids facility was aimed at improving manufacturing capacity, scaling into new markets and bringing additional product lines to Grand Rapids. The company also wanted to upgrade employee facilities and amenities, including locker rooms, bathrooms, break rooms and parking.

“These changes have helped PSG Grand Rapids improve operations and optimize manufacturing,” Kauchak said. “We look forward to this next chapter with enhanced efficiency and room to grow, which will enable us to continue providing exceptional pump and compressor products and services for our customers for many years to come.”
