After many years serving the community from their Northland Drive location, Pro-Turf Outdoor Services is moving their headquarters into the center of Big Rapids.
Their new location at 1207 Maple Street gives the company much better travel efficiency and a larger
presence in town.
“We are now in the business park near our clientele and where we want to be at for our normal
maintenance.” Owner Marty Shaffer said. “It’s going to make us quicker and have easier access to get
the job done.”
Not only did the long-tending LLC outgrow the old location due to being “landlocked,” but they will also be opening up a second location in the Morton Township business park. This will allow Pro-Turf to provide services easier to many of their clients east of town.
“We’re always looking to expand and this will certainly help make us better in the Canadian Lakes area,” Shaffer said.
With the expansion, Pro-Turf will be looking increase their staff in the near future. According to Shaffer, the company will be looking to hire new workers in both the current Big Rapids location and the future expansion site.
“It’s an ongoing process for us but we’re a growing business and are always looking for qualified
applicants to work for us. We’ll have employees stationed at both (locations) and try to fill those spots as quickly as we can.”
