Logistics company triples footprint
A growing logistics company has expanded its presence in the area.
WAFUSA Logistics, a third-party fulfillment company, relocated to a 73,905-square-foot facility in Cascade Township, at 5738 Eagle Dr. SE, owned by Kojaian Management, according to Colliers International West Michigan yesterday.
The building features docks in the front and back, which enhance flow and operations. WAFUSA Logistics also made some upgrades to the space, including lighting.
“We are excited to nearly triple our space, and it’s already filling quickly with products and shipments,” said Kurt Rewa, co-founder, WAFUSA Logistics. “We love being a part of the growing West Michigan community. Colliers helped us find the perfect opportunity to expand our operations and ensured the transition to the new facility went smoothly.”
Tim Van Noord, an advisor with Colliers, provided leasing services for WAFUSA Logistics. Stu Kingma, an industrial broker from NAI Wisinski West Michigan, represented the landlord.
“Large warehouse spaces like this are becoming increasingly more difficult to find in West Michigan, as the region’s distribution industry continues to grow,” Van Noord said.
Brothers Kris Rewa and Kurt Rewa founded WAFUSA in 2013 in a 500-square-foot space in the back of a video store. Today, they serve clients across the state and around the world with order fulfillment, warehousing and consulting services.
The Business Journal previously reported WAFUSA Logistics expanded from a roughly 11,000-square-foot space to a roughly 25,000-square-foot space in 2018.
“Over the last year, we’ve doubled our team to 25 employees, and we continue to grow every year,” Kurt Rewa said. “We are grateful for the opportunity to create local jobs and invest in our community as we have grown.”
WAFUSA also works with a variety of freight companies to help clients deliver packages in the final mile in West Michigan.
