In 2020, Abonmarche launched the Portage office to better serve the Portage/Kalamazoo area. Before the earliest settlers arrived, Pottawatomie Indians inhabited this area. By the 1880s, Portage had earned the distinction of “Celery City” of the nation, and 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.
