The Southshore Companies, through an affiliated entity, recently purchased the former PEMCO facility in Bridgman, Michigan. This property consisting of about 20 acres and a main building of approximately 130,000 square feet is a prior heavy industrial site that has been repurposed for Southshore’s leasing activities. The property was rescued from a tax foreclosure that would have hit the citizens of Bridgman and Berrien County with a tax liability payback of more than $500,000. Berrien County Community Development Director, Dan Fette, Treasurer, Bret Witkowski, and Commissioner, Teri Frehling, worked with the City of Bridgman City Manager, Juan Ganum, and Jordan Kirshenbaum of Southshore to successfully complete the transaction.  Please see The Herald Palladium newspaper article and the Moody on the Market piece for detailed descriptions of the community benefits of this Southshore property purchase.

Southshore’s first tenant in the building is United Container Co., a Michigan-based recycled corrugated packaging distributor.  Southshore looks forward to doing business in Bridgman, Michigan in a facility that has been brought back to economic life.
