GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A local coffee distributor is consolidating its operations in Grand Rapids by purchasing the American Seating property.

Ferris Coffee & Nut Company announced Monday they bought the American Seating building at 601 7th Street NW. They say the move satisfies their need for expanded manufacturing space while keeping their operations within the city’s west side.

The American Seating building spans 165,000 square feet across nine acres of property. It was built in 1993.

The coffee roaster currently has two separate facilities: a distribution center in Wyoming and their headquarters in Grand Rapids. This move will consolidate both building under one roof. They’ll begin their transition into their new home over the course of the next year.

Ferris Coffee has been roasting specialty coffee and gourmet nuts since 1924 in West Michigan.
