By Gabriel Circiog, Associate Editor

Holland 1916 Inc., a private company that is corporate parent for five manufacturing companies, has recently announced it will relocate its corporate headquarters and three of its companies to Liberty, Mo.

Mike Stradinger, CEO of Holland 1916, said: “We needed a facility that could accommodate future growth, provide a more attractive work environment for our current employees and become a centerpiece of future marketing efforts to new customers and new employees. After an extensive search, we determined that the Liberty facility best accomplished those goals.”

The company has leased a 95,000-square-foot facility at 2901 Heartland Drive in the Heartland Meadows Industrial Park and plans to start operations at the new location in August. Holland 1916 Inc. was represented by Patrick J. McGannon, SIOR of Kessinger/Hunter & Co. The owner of the building, Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corp., a public REIT, was represented by Dan Jensen, SIOR and Michael Watson also of Kessinger/Hunter & Company.

The Missouri Department of Economic Development, the City of Liberty and LEDC came up with a strategic economic incentive package to assist Holland 1916 with its expansion. “This move signifies a lot of effort and collaboration among many partners including LEDC, the city and the state,” said Rick McDowell, LEDC executive director. “LEDC is pleased to welcome Holland 1916 Inc., along with the 62 new jobs it brings to Liberty.”

Besides the corporate headquarters relocation, the company will also move its manufacturing operations for Holland Interface Solutions Inc., Holland Integrated Metal Solutions Inc. and Osprey Evaporation Technologies LLC. Holland will keep the other two subsidiaries, Holland Nameplate Inc. and Holland RFID Inc., in North Kansas City, Mo.
