There’s something big going up on Howard Street in Lansing, and it represents some big growth for the Williams AutoWorld family. The new, 16,833 facility will become the new home for Williams Subaru
“We started our plans to build last fall,” says Jeff Williams. “It’s a lot of fun, but a lot of work. Everything will be under one roof."
The new building will include a variety of environmentally friendly features, such as LED lighting, hoists powered by compressed water, in-floor heating and greenspace.
The new building will also be home to new faces at Williams Subaru. Four new employees have been added to the staff already this year, and Williams expects another three or four employees to be added by the time the facility opens in early 2013.
The nearly $3 million project is utilizing all local contractors, including D.L. Kesler & Sons.
“They’re doing a fabulous job,” says Williams.
