About Smart Park

The Southwest Michigan Advanced Research & Technology (SMART) Park serves as a center for technology and industry nestled in rural Cassopolis, Michigan.

The SMART Park sits on roughly 400 acres adjacent to Midwest Energy & Communications (MEC), the founders of the park. MEC is an electric cooperative, fiber internet provider, and propane provider serving over 35,000 businesses and residents in rural southwest and southeast Michigan and portions of northern Indiana and northwest Ohio. MEC prides itself on its smart grid infrastructure and fiber communications.

A key player in its local community, the park is buoyed by its proximity to robust transportation, renowned industries, major universities, and metropolitan areas. Companies that locate here enjoy the opportunity to stand out and grow in an area on the cusp of green initiatives and advanced technologies.
