Hudsonville-area company to add 66 jobs

JAMESTOWN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — An Ottawa County company plans to invest millions in an expansion that will create 66 jobs at a new plant south of Hudonsville.

Royal Technologies will invest about $33.7 million in building a manufacturing plant and warehouse in Jamestown Township, according to a Wednesday release from the company and the Lakeshore Advantage regional development agency. The plant will go in each of the current Royal building in the industrial park off Quincy Street.

Jamestown Township is giving Royal a 12-year property tax abatement to encourage the expansion. It also got a $400,000 grant from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation to help cover construction costs and a $92,000 grant from West Michigan Works! To help with hiring and training.

Royal makes plastic components for office furniture, automotive and other manufacturers. The new plant will be the company’s fourth in Michigan; it also has facilities in Alabama and Texas.
