GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.– Economic development organization, The Right Place, announced Wednesday the approval of a $400,000 incentive that is said to bring new jobs and millions of dollars to the city of Kentwood.

A Sacramento, California company called Stikwood plans to bring the company’s operations into Kentwood. The new facility is projected to bring 73 new jobs and $4.2 million in new investment to the city.
