ZEELAND, Mich. - Office furniture giant Herman Miller has shut down all manufacturing in West Michigan due to the coronavirus. Operations will remain closed until April 13.
 
The decision came after Michigan Governor Gretchen Witmer ordered the closure of most of the state's businesses March 23.
 
Herman Miller, the third largest company on the FDMC 300 list of North American woodworking companies, employs around 4,000 in West Michigan. It had an estimated $2.567 billion in sales for 2019. The company runs 10 manufacturing plants throughout North America and the world, and employs 7,600 workers in total.
