The Marshall Area Economic Development Alliance (MAEDA) is proud to announce it has selected Hoffman Brothers Inc. and Granger Construction for infrastructure improvements at the Marshall Area Jobs, Opportunities, and Recreation Campus (MAJOR) which is also the future site of Ford Motor Co.’s BlueOval Battery Park Michigan.
Battle Creek-based Hoffman Brothers and Lansing-based Granger Construction will provide water and wastewater infrastructure improvements. The City of Marshall will extend the municipal water supply and sanitary sewer utilities to serve BlueOval and future developments on the 1,900-acre site through a cooperative effort that includes MAEDA, the City of Marshall, Marshall Township, Emmett Township and the City of Battle Creek.
“The addition of Hoffman Brothers and Granger marks a very positive step forward for the development of BlueOval Battery Park Michigan and future developments on the site,” said Jim Durian, CEO of MAEDA. “We are proud to welcome two excellent local companies to this project that will create thousands of local jobs in Marshall and boost economic activity now and long into the future.”
Granger provides a variety of commercial construction services to Michigan customers and will be leading the effort in partnership with Hoffman Brothers. As a leading civil contractor in Michigan and the construction industry, Hoffman Bothers has provided a wide range of infrastructure work for nearly 75 years. The two companies will begin working on infrastructure improvements in the coming weeks.
“We’re thrilled to have a part in this exciting project that will mean more jobs and opportunities for our neighbors in Southwest Michigan,” said Dan Eriksson, CEO of Hoffman Brothers. “Our family-owned company dates back to 1947 and we are excited to help create a facility that will benefit our community for generations to come.”
“Granger is excited to begin working on this project that will create economic benefits for Marshall and the entire region,” said Glenn Granger, CEO of Granger. “For years, our company has provided high quality work to our clients and the communities we serve, and we look forward to advancing this project which will pay dividends for years to come.”
