high-quality electronic products to the worldwide automotive industry
and North American fire protection market. The company is the
world leader in the development, manufacture and marketing of
interior and exterior auto-dimming Night Vision Safety automotive
rearview mirrors that dim in proportion to the amount of headlight
glare from trailing vehicle headlamps. Gentex supplies its auto-dimming
mirrors to nearly every major vehicle manufacturer in the world.
When Gentex developed the need to expand its production capacity
with a 225,000 square foot facility, Pollina Corporate Real Estate
was engaged to lead the site selection and state and local incentive
negotiation process. Gentex plans to spend $97 million on the
new facility, including plant, machinery, and equipment.
grown rapidly in recent years, we know how time consuming and
complex a major expansion can be. Adding Pollina Corporate to
our team not only made this project move quickly, but provided
a depth of expertise that helped us achieve all our goals. The
incentive package that the Pollina Corporate team negotiated
exceeded our expectations not only in terms of financial assistance
but also in terms of flexibility. You helped create a synergy
with state and local government that will serve all parties
for many years."
