The Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) is supporting the expansion with the approval of a $335,000 performance-based grant. In addition, workforce development organization West Michigan Works! has offered $48,000 to support the company’s recruiting and on-the-job training investments.
California Closets continues to experience significant growth across North America. In 2015, the company opened a manufacturing facility in Phoenix, Arizona to support demand for its products in the Western U.S. The new facility planned in Cascade Township will supply the eastern portions of the country.
“Attracting a major consumer brand like California Closets is a big win for West Michigan,” said Thad Rieder, Senior Business Development Manager at The Right Place Inc., which has offered staff time and resources. “We competed against several alternative sites in other states, including Illinois, Georgia, North Carolina, and Indiana.”
California Closets produces custom storage options for all areas of the home. For over 30 years, the company has built a reputation as a leader in premium- and luxury space-management. Today, the company has 120 showrooms and over 700 designers across North America.
