Construction Has Started On The New Refrigerated Food Grade Cooler In Coopersville, MI

With an expected completion date of July 2023, Bay expects this operation to generate many good-paying jobs. This temperature-controlled facility will protect client's perishables, both raw materials and finished goods. It will give them the peace of mind to focus their resources on sales, production, engineering, and system improvements.

Coopersville was chosen for this Distribution Center because it is strategically located halfway between the Lakeshore and the GR Metro Area. Bay can optimally service both markets from this central location.

Bay is bringing to Coopersville, Michigan their version of a shining city on a hill. A place where future generations can work, grow, and thrive while building their families and futures together!
