Rx Optical Laboratories Inc. broke ground this week on a $6 million expansion of its corporate headquarters in Kalamazoo.
The project will more than double the size of Rx Optical’s headquarters on South State Street, near Crosstown Parkway, to 36,000 square feet. This follows a previous $3 million expansion that included a patient care area, retail space and laboratories at the site.
The latest expansion will house optician training facilities, talent management and recruiting, insurance billing and other administrative groups. Completion is targeted for July 2017.
The company operates 52 Rx Optical retail stores in Michigan and northern Indiana. A 53rd location opens this fall on Drake Road, the company’s seventh in the Kalamazoo area.
