Feighner Boat Lifts & Docks announced it is opening a second location in Shiawassee County. The company, which is headquartered at 2264 Lansing Road in Charlotte, recently acquired 20 acres along Interstate 69 in Woodhull Township (between the Laingsburg and Perry exits) and will soon begin construction on a new facility that will open in 2019.
“We are excited to move eastward into Shiawassee County, which will provide us more visibility and allow us to serve more customers in Michigan,” said company President Scott Feighner.
The firm recently received zoning approval from the Shiawassee County board of commissioners to move forward on the development, which will include retail and eventually some production, while still maintaining the Charlotte site as it’s main headquarters.
“This is a wonderful family-run company that has been in operation for decades, demonstrating they know how to do things to the right way. They are definitely a welcome addition to our local business community and … will be very successful in Shiawassee County,” said Justin Horvath, president and CEO of the Shiawassee Economic Development Partnership, which provided project assistance.
