Kruggel Lawton Announces Planned Relocation of St. Joseph Office

ST. JOSEPH, MICH - Regional accounting, tax and advisory firm Kruggel Lawton CPAs has announced its planned move to the north side of the City of St. Joseph at 526 Upton Drive East. Formerly referred to as the Perry Ballard incubator building and home to several businesses, the space will now be fully occupied by Kruggel Lawton. Renovations to the building are expected to begin in July and be completed for move-in by late spring of 2018. Kruggel Lawton established its southwest Michigan location in 2015 when it combined operations with St. Joseph-based accounting firm Schaffer & Layher, PLLC, at 805 Van Brunt Avenue.

“We’re thrilled about this move, as it represents yet another step in our ongoing commitment to growth and expansion. This new office will not only allow us to serve our clients more effectively, but also sends a clear message that Kruggel Lawton is serious about doing business in southwest Michigan,” stated Barry Hall, CPA, the firm’s managing partner.

David Schaffer, CPA, a partner in St. Joseph adds,

“Since joining Kruggel Lawton, the team in our St. Joseph office has expanded to meet the opportunities we’re seeing. With the addition of several new people we have outgrown our existing office. We look forward to welcoming clients to our new office location later this year and continuing to provide the personal, expert service they have relied on for many years.”
