LOCAL SUCCESS IN HEALTHCARE

Healthmark Industries - Fraser, MI

Healthmark Industries started in a family garage and has grown into a multi-million dollar company serving both domestic and international clients. The company began doing residual blood testing on endoscopy medical equipment and has since diversified into manufacturing various instrument trays, personal protection equipment, and other instrument and device sterilization products for the healthcare industry.

By working with the Macomb County Department of Planning and Economic Development, Healthmark Industries was able to expand their footprint in the City of Fraser with both the Industrial Facilities and Plant Rehabilitation Tax Exemptions. This investment exceeded 15 million dollars, has exceeded the initially projected job creation of 140 positions and will continue to add more for a total of 320 jobs, and was awarded incentives over the course of the three-phase project.

The company’s expansion totaled over 230,000 square feet of architectural beauty and the facility now houses a high-tech testing lab, assembly area and warehousing for products that are ready to be shipped anywhere globally.
