Wolverine Building Group expands to Southeast Michigan with acquisition
GRAND RAPIDS — Wolverine Building Group has expanded its footprint to Southeast Michigan with the acquisition of Brighton-based construction firm Contracting Resources Inc.
Contracting Resources has 21 employees and offers construction management services to health care, retail, religious, commercial and medical office markets. The company was founded in 2001 by Jim Barnas, a Brighton native who has 40 years of industry experience.
Barnas plans to continue working at Contracting Resources through the end of 2021 during the transition before retiring.
Wolverine Building Group President and co-owner Aaron Jonker told MiBiz the deal was an opportunity to accelerate Wolverine’s growth in Southeast Michigan.
“This was a really great company and a great team,” Jonker said. “After a lot of due diligence, this felt like they fit really great with our team, and it was a strong cultural fit.”
