The Stevensville-based company that is the global leader in the manufacture and distribution of aftermarket consumables and certified reference materials is growing again. In fact, the team at Alpha Resources, LLC. is about to double their footprint in the region with a new 30,000 square foot building.
Ken Mantei, Director of Operations, tells us, “This building is Alpha Resources’ third manufacturing space in Southwest Michigan,” and explains, “Initially this new space will house several lines of specialized production to help meet current demands for consumable products.” He adds, “We are excited about the growth opportunities the new space brings. With the production configuration changes we can make in the new building, we will be able to create more efficient manufacturing flow for existing Alpha Resources products. This will also allow us space for future product expansions.”
Alpha Resources’ headquarters and current manufacturing space, including the Alpha Resources’ ceramics plant, are located at 3090 Johnson Road in Stevensville. Alpha Resources will maintain their current headquarters at Johnson Road and expand their on-site laboratory as a result of the expansion plan.
Mantei says, “Our lab constantly creates certified reference materials, but in 2020 we had several exciting company firsts – in May we released a CRM for Calcium Oxalate, AR5029, and then in July we created our first Ferrochrome CRM for carbon and sulfur, AR308.” He concludes, “This laboratory expansion will allow Alpha’s lab team more space and equipment to create industry leading CRM innovations.”
Additional growth at the new Alpha Resources manufacturing building is projected over the next 18 months, and the company also expects to hire several additional manufacturing positions as part of the expansion and growth.
