Economic Development

Our Economic Development team helps our business customers gain a competitive edge through coordinating the available tools and resources of our state and local partners. Making better informed business decisions helps you succeed, which in turn supports the success of our regional economy. Talk to us first if you are considering moving your business to the Holland area, or looking for incentives to stay in the region.

In business, it’s all about whom you know. We have served our community for more than 100 years, and care about maintaining a thriving regional economy where businesses can prosper and provide opportunities for the greater Holland area. We are not alone; there is a wealth of organizations and services to help your organization succeed. We look forward to working with you!

West Michigan is an exciting place to live and work. It is also a great place to do business. We have a large and dynamic economy, a skilled work force, and we are amongst the most reliable utilities in the United States, with electric rates nearly 20 percent lower than our neighboring investor-owned utility. Relocating or expanding your business here shows your company values innovation and advancement - values that we at the Holland Board of Public Works share as well.

So, set your sites in the Holland area! Talk to our team of partners for no-cost assistance in finding the right location in Holland for your company. We will share information on relocations and connect you to our regional partners for information on financial incentives to help you gain a competitive advantage and set you on the road to success.

To get started, contact us at 616.355.1630.
