Anybody ever heard of "Grand Rapids" brand of bandsaw

I saw this ad on craigslist http://detroit.craigslist.org/tls/806425807.html and I talked to the guy on the phone and he said he got the bandsaw from a friend who upgraded to an 18" model. He says he wasn't able to find out much about the company either, but that he got it without a motor and he put a 1/2 hp motor on it and hasn't used it much since. He said it uses standard guides, bearings, and blades and that the wheels are in good shape.
Anybody have any recommendations?
Thanks in advance.

It looks like "Grand Rapids Industrial Products" is owned by "AMASH BROTHERS L.L.C., 4628 AMASH INDUSTRIAL DR. WAYLAND MICHIGAN 49348"
It looks like they are importers with product lines similar to Harbor Freight.
