Grand River Aseptic Manufacturing (GRAM), a CMO for aseptic pharmaceutical filling, received $9.8 million in capital to expand its facilities, which will create life science jobs in West Michigan. Municipal Employees’ Retirement System (MERS) of Michigan, a nonprofit organization, led the $9.8 million investment round, supported by other Michigan and Indiana-based investors.
“We are delighted with the strong investor response, especially by MERS,” said Tom Ross, GRAM president. “Their considerable support, in combination with the backing from many private investors in our community, is a strong indicator that we’re headed in the right direction. This funding enables us to expand our capabilities, improve our facility, and advance our customer reach, all while creating more highly technical, high-paying jobs in West Michigan.”
