KregelPublications-webKregel Publications has moved its publishing and warehouse operations from its home of 31 years on Wealthy Street in southeast Grand Rapids, Mich. to a new facility at 2450 Oak Industrial Drive NE, Grand Rapids.

Beginning as a used book business in Grand Rapids in 1909, Kregel Publications entered the field of publishing with its first release in 1949: a reprint of a one-volume Bible commentary. Now in its third generation of family ownership, the publishing house has more than 900 titles in print under various Kregel imprints, as well as 500 titles published by Editorial Portavoz, its Spanish-language division.

Kregel distributes more than 700 titles for Lion Hudson, a U.K. publisher based in Oxford, England.

“We are extremely excited to take advantage of the efficiencies that this new facility will provide-one-level warehousing, more economical order fulfillment and a collaborative office environment are major assets added by this move,” said Jerry Kregel, executive vice president of publishing and CFO. “We will also continue to provide support services for Kregel Parable Christian Stores and Kregel Ministry Resources from this location. This move is a significant commitment to the future of our company.”

“Having a large, open warehouse and expandable office area is a definite plus,” added Kregel Publisher Dennis Hillman. “We've remodeled the existing offices and warehouse with flexibility in mind. As the industry continues to change in the future, we will be well-positioned to shape our building to meet those needs and opportunities.”
