Biosolutions, 1811 Hayes St., is a division of the Grand Haven-based Shape Corp. Biosolutions formulates, blends, packages and distributes biodegradable cleaners and industrial coolants for companies committed to maintaining an environmentally safe and healthy workplace.

“In 2006, the company received the Clean & Green branding from the (U.S.) Environmental Protection Agency,” Lackner said. “We are the 25th company in the country to get that recognition.”

Lackner said the company began in 1997 with one employee and it has grown to 10 employees, with primary customers being first- and second-tier automotive suppliers and manufacturers.
