HTC Logistics, Inc., a Holland, Mich.-based division of Hutt Trucking, Co., Inc., sub-leased a sizeable portion of the former Steelcase facility at 5565 East Broadmoor Avenue S.E. in Kentwood, Mich., to expand its dry and temperature-controlled warehouse and cross dock business.
“This adds 600,000 square feet of food-grade warehouse space to our already 1.1 million cubic feet of freezer/cooler space in West Michigan, coupled with the 65,000 square feet of office and warehouse space at our Holland corporate offices,” says Curt Brower, senior vice president.
The new facility is estimated to create 30-40 full-time jobs, including managers, shift supervisors, equipment operators, order pickers and clerical staff. HTC Logistics also has plans in place for further expansion.
