The Tragic Lose of a Historic Building

We regret to inform all of our Oliver Machinery enthusiasts that the original Oliver factory at 1025 Clancy Ave NE in Grand Rapids went up in flames the night of 4/12/15. Please be rest assured that this does not impact our operation in any way.  The fire was reported at about 10:30pm but was well underway by the time firefighters arrived.  At this time the cause has not been determined.  The building was timber framed out of lumber salvaged from a salt processing plant that had been located in eastern Michigan. Over the years it had been debated whether or not the salt impregnated timbers would help retard flames. Unfortunately that debate is now over.  Based upon the architectural drawings which we are in possession of, the building dates back to 1906.  The world famous woodworking firm starting business in 1890 as the American Machinery Company.  Changes in ownership occurred over the years, but the firm became Oliver Machinery in 1919 under the ownership of the Tuthill & Baldwin families.  The Baldwin family retained ownership of the building up until 2014. We operated out of the building for many years but we completed our relocation to Coopersville, MI shortly before the sale of the building.  There were no businesses operating out of the building at the time of the fire, as it was undergoing a massive restoration.
