We're all familiar with renewable energy- wind, solar, hydro. You might be surprised at the number of companies here in West Michigan who are quietly carving out a major presence in supplying the industry.
One of our recent projects was for SolarBOS, headquartered in California. They needed to radically increase their production capabilities, and chose to create a new facility in Walker, MI. According to CEO Jason Schripsema, the choice was made both for a location more centrally located to solar installations, and also to take advantage of the skilled and motivated workforce here in West Michigan.
(BOS- Balance Of System. In the solar energy field, that refers to all the equipment used to tie solar arrays together into one coherent system.)
