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 on 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.
