Founded in 2004, Grand Ledge-based Kuntzsch Business Services, Inc. has added seven employees and moved into a 3,800 square foot rehabbed building in Grand Ledge.
“The 3,800 square feet was actually more space that we needed for the size of our business at the time, but within six months, we added four bodies. So we grew into it,” says President and CEO Rachel Kuntzsch.
Kuntzsch Business Services, Inc. provides services to organizations and businesses that strive to implement new energy solutions. Kuntzsch Business Services manages the Greater Lansing Clean Cities (GLCC), which recently won $1.1 million from a U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) competition for a bus-emission-reduction project.
Kuntzsch moved Kuntzsch Business Services, Inc. into the 300 N. Bridge St. Grand Ledge building in August 2008 after the former tenant, a physical fitness center, moved out.
“We had to do some finishing work to make it functional for an office, but it’s a very nice space,” she says. “It’s laid out so there’s a large open area for workshops and meetings for more than 25 people.”
Kuntzsch’s husband, Dave, and his business partners rehabbed the former auto repair parts warehouse in 2008, adding four 1,000 square foot condos to the upper floor of the building.
The move "ties into our sustainability model because it’s the renewal of an old space,” Kuntzsch says.
Kuntzsch Business Services, Inc. occupies the entire first floor of the building.
