AKT Peerless Environmental Services has been hiring and it has it sights set on expanding its Detroit office.
The environmental development firm has offices in Saginaw, Lansing, Grand Rapids and Detroit, recently moving its Detroit office from downtown to New Center. The company overall has hired 12 new people in the last year, while maintaining its Detroit office of five employees and a couple of interns.
"We have found that there has been a good deal of stability in economic development," says Tony Kashat, principal at AKT Peerless Environmental Services
. "We have been able to maintain a consistent workload and have that go up 3-4 percent since then."
AKT Peerless Environmental Services specializes in brownfield redevelopment, helping companies and developers harness things like tax credit programs. The added redevelopment of the greater downtown Detroit area is expected to help AKT Peerles Environmental Systems up its workload and make some new hires.
"We're optimistic that we could add 2-3 people," Kashat says.
