TGW Logistics Group Expands Systems Group in Norton Shores, Michigan

As a leading global supplier of automated material handling solutions and software, Austria-based TGW Logistics Group will expand its American business unit, TGW Systems, to a larger facility, 38.6 miles northwest of Grand Rapids, in Norton Shores, Michigan.

To accommodate its rapid growth, including a 60% increase in U.S. project orders, TGW Systems plans to relocate its manufacturing plant from 6870 Grand Haven Rd. in Norton Shores to a 170,000 square foot facility, currently occupied by Wacker Neuson, at 1300 E. Mount Garfield Rd.

“With the acquisition of this facility, we will double the size of our U.S.A. manufacturing footprint and also have capacity for further expansion,” said Alex Ruch, Director of HR, TGW Systems. Ruch said. "This new location will afford us the ability to grow, exceed our customer expectations as well as provide a world-class work environment for our employees.”

TGW has increased its workforce by 35 percent in the past year, and is "busting at the seams," Ruch added. "We're always planning on hiring more people, including a job fair for Wacker Neuson employees affected by that shutdown.”

Between locations in Norton Shores and Grand Rapids, TGW has about 385 employees in West Michigan. The company attributes its domestic growth to technological innovations, advanced goods-to-person solutions and an extended service portfolio.
