Design was completed by Duket Architects Planners and Rudolph/Libbe Inc., a Walbridge-based general contractor, is the construction company responsible for building.
Attendees of the groundbreaking included IC-Fluid Power President, Armin Hunger and Vice President, Bernd Hunger, Mike Duket and Jeff Brummel of Duket Architects Planners, as well as Dick Kelsey, Troy Fritch and Carla Klatt from Rudolph Libbe.
