Short-distance move in works for Boyne City's Classic Instruments

(From the Petoskey News-Review, April 3, 2012) During the decade in which John McLeod has owned Classic Instruments, the Boyne City business has established a global reputation — and its growth is prompting a short-distance move to roomier quarters . Creating instrumentation for classic cars, boats and other vehicles that maintains the style of the vehicle while offering state-of-the-art technology is the company’s goal, and a team of graphic designers, computer-aided design drawers and operators, and engineers makes it happen. McLeod said he started out with just a couple of employees, and the business has grown to include a full-time staff of 27. The company has also outgrown its current location at 1299 M-75 South in Boyne City, and will be relocating to Boyne City’s nearby industrial park. There, it will take over existing office space, with plans to build a custom shop covering 8,000-plus square feet during the next couple of years. McLeod said the transition will happen gradually. Currently, carpenter Cliff Parker is working on renovating the office space. Full story.
