Medical device company expands in Holland Township

HOLLAND, MI — A company that designs, manufactures and distributes medical models and surgical trainers is moving into a new building in Holland Township.

Encoris Group Corporation is investing $1 million in the building, according to Lakeshore Advantage, an economic development group serving Ottawa and Allegan counties.

“Encoris Group Corporation’s success story is incredible,” Jennifer Owens, president of Lakeshore Advantage, said in a news release. “We’ve been working closely with them since 2013. What started as an entrepreneurial business in a church café has grown into a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility. We love seeing companies get what they need to thrive in our region.”

The company’s new building will support “additional design, development and manufacturing” of its products.

“The medical device industry is constantly introducing new implant technologies,” said Jim TenBrink, co-founder and vice president of Encoris. “Encoris’ superior medical models and surgical trainers will greatly promote those technologies globally.”

Holland Township supported the project with a 12-year industrial facilities tax exemption.

“Holland Charter Township is pleased to support the growth of Encoris Group Corporation, and we wish them continued success,” Steve Bulthuis, the township’s manager, said in a press release.
