Muskegon County is a fast-growing lakeshore community in Western Michigan. Muskegon has long been a center of industrial development with major manufacturers in aerospace, automotive, office furniture, defense, and related industries calling the area home. This outstanding industrial base has been an engine for economic growth and is creating opportunities in emerging industries like energy technology and life sciences. Muskegon is also home to West Michigan’s largest commercial deep-water port with proposed cross-lake shipping to provide direct links to the western U.S. and Asian markets. The Muskegon County Airport offers daily flights to Chicago and the Gerald R. Ford International Airport in Grand Rapids is less than an hour’s drive. Add to that the quality of life that comes with a location on the water, and over $1 billion in major investments, it becomes clear why Muskegon County is the preferred choice for business expansion. In addition, Muskegon is part of the Grand Rapids – Muskegon – Holland Combined Metropolitan Statistical Area (CMSA), the fastest growing region in the upper Midwest with a population of over 1.3 million persons.Muskegon Overview Brochure
