Flexco has announced it will expand its operations and move to a new location in Michigan. The company, which provides belt conveyors with solutions for splicing, belt cleaning, belt tracking, spillage, and slippage, will move from Grand Rapids, MI, to 1920 Northridge Drive NW in Walker, MI, in 2021. The new facility will increase the company’s footprint from 18 to 36 acres as the facility will measure a total of 288,000 square feet with 65,000 square feet of that being office, wellness, and training space, and the rest dedicated to manufacturing.

Construction of the new facility began in November 2019 and is expected to be complete by early 2021. The company’s current 175 employees are expected to move to the new building, and the company anticipates a 30 percent increase in headcount to meet projected sales growth.

Flexco is headquartered in Downers Grove, IL, and has subsidiaries in Australia, Chile, China, England, Germany, India, Mexico, Singapore, and South Africa.
