Default Looking for a Engine Re-Babbiter in South East Michigan

I'm in need of a shop in lower Michigan, preferably in the south east part, who can replace the babbit and grind the crank. I was given a name of a company called "C. D. Engine Service in Hudsonville Mich. My brother in law talked to the guy but he couldn't give any references. This is a red flag for me. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, John
