Netherlands-Based Falk Production Expands Walker, Michigan, Operations

Falk Production, a manufacturer of insulated metal building panels, with parent company FALK North America, plans to expand its insulated panel manufacturing operation in Walker, Michigan. The $35 million project is expected to create 45 jobs.

The project is being supported by a $270,000 Michigan Business Development Program performance-based grant. In addition the City of Grand Rapids is working to facilitate an Industrial Facilities Tax Abatement (PA 198). The Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) also authorized a State Education Tax Abatement to be used in conjunction with the locally approved abatement.

“Headquartered in the Netherlands, Falk Panel initially worked with The Right Place back in 2018 to establish their first North American operations right here in Walker,” noted Brent Case, Vice President of Business Attraction of The Right Place, and the lead on this project. “We’re thrilled to see the significant growth they’ve had over the past five years and happy that they’ve chosen to continue their expansion and investment in our region.”

Falk Production produces insulated metal building panels for use in building, roof, cold storage, and wall construction projects. Netherlands-based FALK Bouwsystemen B.V. is a manufacturer of sandwich panels for roofs, walls and façades.
