Staffing firm secures new location
A staffing firm that specializes in recruiting and placing manufacturing and logistics workers has added a West Michigan location.
Mike Fettig, president of Fettig Employment Agency, said yesterday his firm opened an office last month in Lowell, at 11635 Fulton St.
The firm also has locations in Rockford and northwest Grand Rapids.
“We chose this location in Lowell as a place for expansion, due to its great accessibility to the Lowell community and surrounding towns,” Fettig said.
“We have existing customers in the area already."
Firms on the project
The firm signed a two-year lease for the 1,087-square-foot space with Tri-Cord Enterprises, and Tri-Cord’s in-house contractor completed the build out.
NAI Wisinski of West Michigan brokered the lease deal.
Fettig said his firm did the interior design and hired Kentwood Office Furniture to provide the furnishings.
“We mirrored the same image we have in our other locations to continue the theme,” Fettig said.
Julie Jewett is the branch manager at the new office.
Fettig said the location will have three full-time recruiters.
Founded in 1995, Fettig originally focused on general business staffing. As the firm grew, it expanded its services to include office, skilled manufacturing, direct hire and light industrial, including contract-to-hire positions.
Last year, Fettig placed 500 workers in permanent jobs on its customer sites throughout West Michigan.
