GP Manufacturing To Celebrate Ribbon Cutting

Community Invited to Attend Thursday, July 14th at 1:00 p.m.
Buchanan, Michigan – Three years ago, Erika Schmid became the new owner of GP Manufacturing in Buchanan, however, due to COVID the company was never able to celebrate with a proper ribbon cutting. Fast forward to Thursday, July 14th at 1:00 p.m., the Southwest Michigan Regional Chamber, Buchanan Area Chamber of Commerce, and the City of Buchanan will all join together to celebrate GP with their much-deserved ribbon cutting.
Located at 16689 Bakertown Rd in the redbud city, GP Manufacturing, Inc., is a precision machine shop specializing in complex CNC machined components.
