Southwest Michigan First Release: WMU BTR Park Lands A Dozen Companies


10/19/2005 5:13:03 PM

KALAMAZOO About half the companies located in Michigan’s 11 Smart Zones can be found in the Western Michigan University Business Technology and Research Park, a $150 million initiative at WMU’s Parkview Campus. More than two dozen companies, employing some 400 people, have either relocated to the BTR or have begun business life there, said Bob Miller, WMU’s Associate Vice President of Community Outreach. The BTR Park, at just five years old, is nearly 80 percent built out, Miller said. The average build out of a University research park of this size is eight to 12 years. Almost half the companies at the BTR Park are in the Southwest Michigan Innovation Center.
