Binkelman Corporation will move its headquarters from Toledo to Bowling Green. The move stems from Binkelman’s continued growth and need for additional space.
Conversations began between Binkelman and Bowling Green Economic Development in February of this year. Several sites throughout Michigan and Ohio were being evaluated, but Bowling Green rose to the top based on several key factors – location, accessibility, and incentives.
The City of Bowling Green is honored to welcome Binkelman Corporation to the community. Their new home will be 828 Van Camp Road, the former Ishikawa Gasket building. Renovations have begun and operations are expected to start in their new location by September.
Binkelman will be retaining its 30-plus employees and expect to create 15 new jobs over the next few years.
“Binkelman is very excited to move to a community that shares the same values and passion as our family-owned organization. The community of BG has shown exceptional hospitality to our company, and we are very happy to start our 75th year at our new location in Bowling Green,” says Brad Fitzgerald, Binkelman’s General Manager.
