American Seating Reveals Plans for New HQ
American Seating revealed plans for its new corporate headquarters and manufacturing operations at 1040 40th St. SE in Grand Rapids.
The company is renovating an existing facility into an over 210,000-square-foot hub for transportation-seating product design, manufacturing, and speed to market.
The southeast Grand Rapids location is seven miles from American Seating’s current site on Grand Rapids’ northwest side where the company has been since its inception in 1886.
Renovation work at the new location just recently began, and company leaders anticipate starting to move into the new space at the end of the year.
