Metal Flow plans $7.2M expansion in Holland Township

Metal Flow, a worldwide leader in deep draw and progressive die stamping, is investing $7.2 million to expand in Holland Township.  
This expansion adds 60,000 square feet of space in a new facility adjacent to the manufacturer’s existing facility and will create 10 new jobs.

Kelly Springer is CEO of Metal Flow Corp. 
“As a global supplier of technically sophisticated products, Metal Flow has experienced growth and made investments in new technologies,” says Metal Flow CEO Kelly Springer. “That growth and investment, along with anticipated future growth, resulted in the need for additional square footage.”
After evaluating several locations within North America, Metal Flow chose to expand on property purchased years ago and leverage the talented workforce currently located in the Holland area, she adds.
“Our new facility will have light manufacturing, robotics, automation, and logistics to enable continued support of existing and new customers,” Springer says. 
‘The heartbeat of our economy’
Lakeshore Advantage, the economic development organization that assists employers with growth opportunities in Ottawa and Allegan counties, connected Metal Flow with local resources on this project.
“Manufacturing is the heartbeat of our economy. Metal Flow is a great example of a future-focused company, expanding to make investments in new technologies that will help secure its prosperous future,” says Jennifer Owens, Lakeshore Advantage president. “Congratulations to Metal Flow on their continued success.”
Holland Township is supporting this project in the form of a 12-year Industrial Facilities Tax Exemption approved on Aug. 18. 
“Holland Charter Township is pleased to support the expansion and investment Metal Flow is making in their facilities,” says Township Manager Steve Bulthuis.
