living the dream

Longyear’s legacy of growth and cultivation extends beyond our work to include our way of life. Our headquarters is in Marquette, MI along the shores of Lake Superior, and we serve a six-state region across the northern Midwest. 

Our friendly, active communities brim with grit and determination, and our people live strong amidst incredible natural beauty.

Why we're special


In Marquette and throughout our region, there’s active outdoor recreation for everyone. If you love to be out in nature, your options are endless—winter, spring, summer or fall.


Our locations offer our employees an array of housing options, from walkable small towns to countryside settings, to modern waterfront homes. Of course you’ll also find traditional apartments, townhomes, and single-family homes in bustling communities. From simple to luxurious, you’re sure to find a place that feels like home.


Say hello to friendly neighbors and goodbye to traffic stress. At our headquarters in Marquette, the average commute time is about 17 minutes. And all of our companies are in the kinds of places where people are proud of their communities and schools, and happy to put down roots.


The K-12 schools in our communities have been recognized statewide for academics, outdoor programs, and hands-on learning. And our region’s career technical training centers, community colleges, and public universities partner with area businesses to engage students and open doors to future employment opportunities.

we have it all

There’s a reason why we choose to live and work here. Along with the region’s natural beauty and friendly communities, Longyear companies offer you the chance to grow and prosper. At any of our companies, you can make a difference every day.
