Great Lakes Tech Park amenities make company’s $28 million expansion ‘very convenient’
26 Mar 2020
With customer demand on the rise, Saginaw Control & Engineering began planning an expansion. But the current headquarters, where the business has operated for more than 50 years, is built out and landlocked.
The company had just built a distribution center in Tulsa, Okla. and still had 25 acres there with room for another facility. Yet, Saginaw Control opted instead to make a $28 million investment on 35 acres located in the Great Lakes Tech Park just down the road at M-46 and M-52. Land for the Tech Park and its development was made possible by grants from the State of Michigan.
“The features that the Tech Park has, the fiber-ready and how Consumers (Energy) has it set up for electricity and the gas being right there ready to go...all the features of the park make it very convenient,” said Scott Baldauf, vice president of sales and marketing for the manufacturer of standard stock and custom-designed electrical enclosures.
