Benton Harbor, Michigan
Our team began shaping Southwest Michigan communities more than 40 years ago, and it all began in Benton Harbor, Michigan.

In 1979, we got our start here by providing clients with surveying, civil engineering, and marina development services, and our Benton Harbor home serves as an iconic landmark in the city's blossoming downtown district.
In August of 2021, our Goshen team moved into a brand new space right in the heart of the Goshen Art District.

Goshen is known as the center of manufacturing for recreational vehicles, and also hosts one of the largest county fairs in the United States.

Hobart is a significant place for our railway system as it includes three major railroads – Norfolk Southern Railway; Chicago, Fort Wayne, and Eastern Railway; and Canadian National Railway.
In 2020, Abonmarche launched the Portage office to better serve the Kalamazoo/Portage area. Before the earliest settlers arrived, Pottawatomie Indians inhabited this area. While Kalamazoo was known as the "Paper City" because of the many paper mills in and near that city, Portage had earned the distinction of "Celery City" of the nation; the area remained prolific in celery production until the middle of the twentieth century. Today, Portage is the home of pharmaceutical company Pfizer’s largest manufacturing facility, at 1,300 acres, while Kalamazoo is the home of many well-known breweries, including Bell's Brewery.
