The expansion is a 10,000 square foot new facility.


05/20/2022 // HOLLAND, MICH – Encoris Group Corporation, a designer, manufacturer, and distributor of medical models and surgical trainers for education, promotion, simulation, and clinical skills learning within the medical device sector worldwide, is investing $1,027,494 into a 10,000 square foot new facility the company will be moving into later this month. Lakeshore Advantage, the economic development organization that assists employers with growth opportunities in Ottawa and Allegan counties, connected the company with local resources on this project.

"Encoris Group Corporation’s success story is incredible," said Jennifer Owens, Lakeshore Advantage President. "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 core focus of Encoris Group Corporation is to meet its customers' anatomical medical modeling needs. With decades of medical modeling and surgical training expertise, Encoris Group Corporation's new facility will support additional design, development, and manufacturing to continue driving advanced product innovations in the industry.

"The medical device industry is constantly introducing new implant technologies. Encoris' superior medical models and surgical trainers will greatly promote those technologies globally," said Jim TenBrink, Co-Founder, Vice President, and Client Growth Strategist of Encoris.


Encoris Group Corporation first got connected to SURGE in 2013. SURGE, powered by Lakeshore Advantage, provides high-potential product placement and technology startups with the tools and resources they need to launch and commercialize successful companies. SURGE played a key role in Encoris' development and assisted Encoris in securing additional funding.

"Today, with Jennifer Owens, Amanda Chocko (Director of Entrepreneurship), and the team at the helm, their prowess continues in helping small businesses thrive. Being a SURGE member provides tremendous value for any budding entrepreneur or company relocating to West Michigan," said TenBrink.

Holland Charter Township is supporting this project in the form of a 12-year Industrial Facilities Tax Exemption approved last night.

"Holland Charter Township is pleased to support the growth of Encoris Group Corporation, and we wish them continued success," said Steve Bulthuis, Holland Charter Township Manager.
