About Us


B & G Custom Works, Inc. was started in 1978 by Bob & Gayle Hare in an old cow barn located on the family farm in Otsego, Michigan.

The business has grown from two part-time employees spray painting the inside of smoke detectors to a metal fabricating shop with state-of-the-art equipment.  As a multi-shift operation, B & G Custom Works, Inc. provides employment opportunities for over thirty people and is projecting steady growth for the coming years.

We serve a broad based market including the machine tool industry, communications, computer, Tier 1&2 Automotive suppliers, furniture manufacturer's, environmental test chambers, plastic material handling systems, Yacht manufacturers, Hydraulic and fuel tanks suppliers and many others on a smaller basis such as agriculture, etc.  Through sales to OEM'S, we have products all over the world. B&G also designs and builds custom and standard conveyors of all kinds.

Due to space constraints, B&G purchased a second location in Plainwell, Michigan, in June, 1997.  By May, 2000, it had outgrown its floor space resulting in purchasing its current building of 67,000 square feet which accomodates all operations and has provided room for future growth.

The team effort by its employees has made the name, B&G Custom Works, Inc., synonymous with quality, service, and on time delivery.



"As a team, we dedicate the resources of B&G Custom Works, Inc. to meet or exceed our customers' requirements and needs; and to reach our organizational goals of continuous improvement and on time deliveries."
