ESGR in the News


ZEELAND, Mich. – To celebrate and recognize Veterans Day, Gentex Corporation held a ceremony at their facility in Zeeland, Michigan Nov. 11. President and CEO Steve Downing reaffirmed his company’s support by signing an Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve Statement of Support.

The Holland Police Department Color Guard presented the flags, Gentex passed out challenge coins and invited Col. Bennett, Chief of Staff for the Michigan National Guard, to be a guest speaker.

Veterans and active duty members of the Gentex Corporation were recognized for their service and had the opportunity to do a question and answer session with Col. Bennett after the ceremony.

Gentex has been holding a Veterans Day ceremony for the past six years and has developed a business resource group called V.E.T.S. (Veterans Empowering through Teamwork and Service).

Michigan ESGR volunteers thanked Gentex Corporation for organizing this celebration and inviting the Michigan Committee to be a part of it.
