For nearly 30 years, Ensign has been engineering and building bulk material handling equipment for integrators, process engineering firms, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and customers globally. In addition to bulk material handling equipment, Ensign is calling for renewed efforts to implement lean business systems, the development of innovative products, and the expansion into new markets. Ensign’s success and future growth are strongly rooted in our philosophy of providing smart solutions and superior customer service.
Ensign Equipment is committed to providing high-value equipment to our customers through superior customer service, smart solutions, and on-time delivery at a competitive price. We will accomplish this through a system of continuous improvement and team participation with the primary goal of meeting or exceeding customer expectations. Our success and achievements will be shared with our team, the community and organizations that represent our values.
In 1990, based on unfulfilled market demand, David Pulver founded Ensign Equipment in Holland, MI, USA. Ensign initially started the business in the original Chris Craft boat manufacturing facility that dated back to 1939. The sales that fueled early growth were primarily portable bulk storage bins, surge bins, tilters, and dumpers for a few key customers. Other equipment built at that time included mixers, screw conveyors, live-bottom storage bins, and power hoppers. With a growing economy in the mid to late 90s, Ensign outgrew its original manufacturing location.
Ensign built a new building on the northwest side of Holland in 2001 that provided a modern manufacturing facility, office space, and room for growth. In 2010 a shift was made to expand Ensign’s product offerings to new markets, as well as new products to the existing industries it already served. Expanding sales & marketing efforts, lean business systems, product improvement, new product development, and automation are continual focuses as we grow our customer service team.
Today, Ensign enjoys increasing market share by engineering and building smart systems that help companies operate more efficiently in a competitive global marketplace. Our focus toward continuous improvement, intelligent solutions, and the desire to go the extra mile continue to earn industry recognition.
