Grand River Polishing Co. – Spring Lake, MI

Grand River Polishing Co., located in Spring Lake, MI, has been in the metal polishing industry for over 40 years and a part of Leggett & Platt since 2008. 

The facility became Eco Initiative-registered in January 2016. Grand River Polishing Co. had great success during the implement portion of their sustainability program by not only meeting, but exceeding their impact reduction goals. The facility has worked with customers and suppliers on a foam packaging reuse program to greatly reduce the amount of new foam purchases. They have also established a recycling program for general items such as plastic and cardboard. 

Even though Grand River Polishing Co. is a small operation of less than 30 employees, they continue to identify big ways to reduce their impacts. The facility recently identified a way to recycle metal buffing wheel centers. This can be as many as 200 units per week.
