What Bert Has To Say About Grand Rapids-Wyoming Metro Area


Grand Rapids is the primary cultural and business hub of western Michigan. Nearby hardwood forests made the city a notable furniture-producing center in the 19th and early 20th centuries. That industry continues today but has transitioned somewhat towards high-tech office furniture, serving as headquarters for such names as Steelcase and Herman Miller. The area is far less vulnerable to the ups and downs of the auto industry than most of Michigan.
