Grand Haven’s GHSP, a global technology company primarily serving the automotive and appliance industries, is moving into a 140,000-square-foot global headquarters and innovation campus in Holland. The expansion will almost double the company’s existing space.
“We are on the leading edge of technology, and our rapid growth requires a campus that supports innovation and collaboration and draws top talent,” says Marc Smeyers, chief technology officer of GHSP. “Not only will our employees have an innovative environment to work in, GHSP will gain greater efficiency by having teams collocated in a single location ranging from product concept to final validation of our products.”
Located in the Holland Technical Center, the new space will combine its four development locations in Grand Haven into a single location as well as provide additional technology development space. It will also house all headquarter operations, product development teams, and a new test lab.
GHSP will continue to expand its production capabilities in the Grand Haven facility and create job opportunities in west Michigan with the increased space available.
“The move of our headquarters frees up valuable office and manufacturing space in Grand Haven, which is needed for meeting growth goals projected for the next three-five years,” says Pat Halloran, vice president of North America operations at GHSP. “Additionally, it allows the Grand Haven plant operations teams to focus on continuously improving our competitive position.”
GHSP plans to transition its headquarters and innovation lab to the Holland campus at the beginning of 2020. The company was founded in 1924.
