Space Offered to Businesses Displaced by Floods

Space Offered to Businesses Displaced by Floods

An Internet company in Grand Rapids is offering free, temporary work space to small businesses displaced by flooding that's hit West Michigan.

Iserv CEO Rich Koch says he wants to open unused work space at his company's headquarters and data center to assist other businesses.

He told WOOD Radio he contacted mayors of Grand Rapids, Grandville, Wyoming and other area towns saying he has space at their headquarters in the 5200 block of 33rd Street.

"We had some people move in on Saturday evening with a U-Haul and their computers go into our data center.  We've had a couple of inquiries."

Koch said he was back home in Boston as the Marathon bombings tragedy unfolded "and I came out to Grand Rapids and here we are with more craziness going on, so we're trying to help things."

Koch said it's not a matter of trying to profit by the misfortune of other businesses, they have space and connectivity, they want to help the community. "faxing, printing, the normal things you do to keep a company going, we can provide that for them, we're 24/7, we have a kitchen, we have hot coffee going all the time."
