Michigan-based Schupan & Sons, Inc. is expanding at two locations in Kalamazoo, investing an expected $10.1 million for its growth in Michigan.

The project will increase manufacturing capacities and add office space to Schupan Aluminum & Plastic Sales’ current location.

Kendra Townsend, Schupan's marketing and communications manager, says the sales division expects to add more than 40,000 square feet and an additional 50 employees over the next three years.

The aluminum and plastic service center specializes in a full line of new aluminum and plastic mill products. The manufacturing department “utilizes state-of-the-art technology, producing complex components for the medical device, aerospace and office furniture industries,” according to the company.

Schupan Electronics Recycling will also be expanding its Kalamazoo footprint, adding 80,000 square feet of processing space and an additional 30 employees over the next three years.

The electronics recycler is nearly tripling its current size, with room to add more processing equipment as it expands services to its growing customer base.
