Applied Imaging purchases new building to accommodate recent and projected growth
(GRAND RAPIDS, MI) – Applied Imaging, Michigan’s premier office technology dealer, will relocate and expand its corporate headquarters this summer to accommodate double digit annual growth and anticipated growth. The company recently purchased a more than 60,000 square foot facility located at 5555 Glenwood Hills Parkway SE.
Applied Imaging will move from its current 25,000 square foot facility, located at 5282 East Paris to the renovated facility, in July 2016. They have experienced steady growth in their number of employees, as well as product and service offerings, and have occupied their current space since 1999.
NAI Wisinski of West Michigan brokers Stu Kingma, SIOR and Jim Badaluco, SIOR represented Applied Imaging in the purchase of the Glenwood Hills Parkway facility.
“Our growth throughout Michigan, both organically and through strategic acquisitions, has our current space at full capacity,” said John Lowery, Applied Imaging’s founder and president. “Plus, our managed network services program requires additional personnel supported by several sophisticated technology upgrades to keep up with the demand we’re experiencing for local network support.”
The new Glenwood Hills Parkway location will house Applied Imaging’s corporate headquarters, as well as its Customer Loyalty Center, which will include expanded showrooms and service dispatch, currently located offsite. In addition, the new location also provides convenient freeway access for visiting customers and employees.
“We’re excited to see a company with its roots here in Grand Rapids expand into a space of this kind,” said Stu Kingma, SIOR, NAI Wisinski of West Michigan Associate Broker. “An expansion of this kind is not only great news for Applied Imaging, but it’s beneficial to the Grand Rapids’ community as well.”
