Downtown Flint is picking up a new business resident.
Goyette Mechanical is moving its Construction Division to 307 E. Court St. and will transition about two dozen employees to the new location. The company expects to complete the move by late September.
“We are moving our construction estimators and project managers, plus some administrative people,” said Tom Halligan, Goyette’s construction sales manager. “The move is being made to accommodate our recent growth. We will probably hire a few more people over the next 12 months at our Center Road location once the move is complete.”
Headquartered on Gorey Avenue off Center Road, Goyette has been in Flint for nearly a century.
“The City of Flint has been our home for the last 90 years, and with this investment we plan to stay headquartered and continue to grow our presence in the city and Genesee County,” Halligan said. “Supporting the families living and working here has always been a core value of Goyette.”
And, he added:
“We could not be more excited to be a part of the revitalization of the downtown area and look forward to supporting our fellow downtown businesses.”
