GRAND HAVEN—GHSP, a manufacturer of vehicle shift systems, pumps, and electronic controls, is opening a 140,000-square-foot global headquarters and innovation campus in Holland.
The move nearly doubles the square footage of the company, founded in Grand Haven as a metal stamper in 1924.
“This is another step toward the growth strategy that we established in 2018,” said Tom Rizzi, CEO of GHSP. “We are excited for our team to make the move to the new facility in Holland. GHSP is proud to call West Michigan home and we look forward to the continued growth opportunities within the markets we serve.”
GHSP is expanding its technology development space and combining its four development locations in Grand Haven into a single location. The campus in Holland will provide a more efficient working environment housing all headquarters operations, product development teams, and a new test lab.
“We are on the leading edge of technology, and our rapid growth requires a campus that supports innovation and collaboration, and draws top talent,” said Marc Smeyers, CTO 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.”
GHSP will continue to expand its production capabilities in the Grand Haven facility for its customers 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 to five years,” said 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.
