Supreme Machined Products gets tax abatement

A 12-year, 50-percent tax abatement for Supreme Machined Products was unanimously approved Monday by the Spring Lake Township Board. Company officials said they plan to add $3.2 million of machinery to manufacture automotive metal components at their plant, 18686 172nd Ave. The move is expected to add 10 jobs. The abatement will save the company about $100,000 over 12 years, according to Township Trustee Bob Shay. Last year, Supreme Machined Products spent $1.8 million in equipment.

“We’re excited about their continued growth and investment in the community,” Township Manager Gordon Gallagher said. “They’ve been a very good employer in the area.”

Supreme Machined Products manufactures automotive parts, power tools, hydraulic fittings and diesel engine components, and currently employs 125.

The Spring Lake Township facility, with 75,000 square feet, is the company headquarters. The company also has facilities in South Carolina and China.

Joy Gaasch, president of the Chamber of Commerce Grand Haven-Spring Lake-Ferrysburg, said she recently toured the Spring Lake facility.

“They’re a company that’s growing and they continue to reinvest in our community,” she said. “They are the kind of company we want to keep here.”
