Imperial Municipal Services (commonly referred to as IMS) started in 1991 when then office manager, Andy Sparks, bought a part of Michigan Township Services and renamed it its present -day name. As the company started to grow, Andy hired Doug Hopkins to become an Assistant Inspector, Plan Reviewer and later, Building Official. In 1997, the company moved from its location by the Grand River to its present location in Rockford. In 1998, Doug bought the company from Andy. Today, IMS contracts with many communities providing Building Officiating, Plan Reviewing and Inspecting in the disciplines of building, electrical, mechanical and plumbing. They provide these services in some form or another to 12 communities from the Village of Caledonia in southern Kent County to Casnovia Township in Muskegon County and as far west as Robinson Township in Ottawa County. IMS also provides many communities with Zoning Administration and Inspection Services.
