From napkin sketch to final production
A Zeeland company is marking its 20th anniversary with a significant expansion.
Eagle Design & Technology is undergoing a 16,000-square-foot expansion at 55 E. Roosevelt Ave. in Zeeland. Its current facility spans 22,000 square feet.
Eagle primarily solves problems in the manufacturing world using concept/CAD design, 3D printing prototypes, CNC machining, and production tooling and injection molding.
“Customers will come to us and tell us what they are looking for or what their problem is with a current product and we come up with a concept using our manufacturing experience. We have the tools in-house to make a functional prototype as well as put their product into production,” said Robin Van Bragt, Eagle Design & Technology vice president.
Eagle Design serves a wide variety of industries across the globe, including the office furniture, appliance, home goods, utilities, aerospace and automotive industries.
“Our customers’ success is our purpose,” said Bruce Okkema, Eagle Design & Technology owner. “We have everything we need in human expertise and technology under one roof and focused on that one thing. We take ideas from napkin sketch concepts and move them to final production, or start from any point in between to make dreams reality.”
The expansion will help Eagle Design better serve customers with custom product design, development build and assembly needs for manufactured products and components.
“With this expansion, we will be able to grow our manufacturing and assembly capabilities by adding more equipment and people,” Van Bragt said.
Eagle currently employs 29 people and expects to add to its team to support the expansion.
