BizStream Expands in West Michigan
Company investing over $500K in Ottawa County and creating more than 12 new high paying jobs
- BizStream, a software development company, is constructing a 6,200 square foot expansion at their Allendale Charter Township office and will invest over 500K. The expansion will allow BizStream to comfortably accommodate 50 people in the new space. BizStream anticipates adding 12 new high paying jobs over the next 3 years.
, a local economic development organization that assists employers in Ottawa and Allegan counties, and the Allendale Chamber of Commerce
worked closely with BizStream on this project by connecting the company with resources to support their growth through various grants totaling $110,000.
"We love having BizStream in an area that is so pro-community but also pro-business. With help from the Allendale Chamber of Commerce, Lakeshore Advantage and the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, we are able to grow our business, stay in Allendale, and save some money," says Mark Schmidt, Founder.
BizStream is known for Kentico CMS web site development, specializing in complex integration with SSO, ERP, CRM, payment gateways, and other internal business systems.
“BizStream has experienced a lot of growth over the past five years, much more than we originally anticipated,'' says Brian McKeiver, Co-founder and Solution Architect. “Due to our rapid growth, we have quickly outgrown the office space we purchased and renovated in what seems like just a few years ago. Our new expansion will provide space for new team members, more area for their workspaces and make for a more comfortable environment. When completed, we’ll also gain additional conference rooms, casual meeting spaces, showers, locker rooms, and an additional coffee bar”.
“Whenever we start construction at our office we always involve our team members. This is their space and we want them to be happy here” says Josh Trench, QA Specialist and Facilities Manager. “We’re a very collaborative and transparent team - opening this up to the entire company is a fun way to get some fresh ideas. We’ve had suggestions ranging from artwork, unique divider walls, a four-season room, and a slide. We are implementing many of those suggestions in our designs, including the slide, which should complement our fire pole well”, laughs Trench.
BizStream’s office and home of the new expansion is located at 11480 53rd Avenue, Allendale, MI 49401. The expansion is slated to be completed in the winter of 2019.
