Default West Michigan Guys - need some help

Hey West Michigan folks - need a little help here. I'm applying for a job over in Holland, MI, and I'm trying to do a little research on the company. Problem is, the position is through an executive search firm (headhunter), so I don't have the company name. All I know is that it is a Fortune 150 company, it's 53 years old, with 95,000 employees, and it is located in Holland.

My initial thought was "Amway", but I'm pretty sure they are located in Grand Rapids, and their parent company is in Ada. Any other big companies over in Holland?

Many thanks in advance!

aren't Prince and JCI one and the same ?

Rambunctious or Waterfowl should be able to help you with this one.

JCI bought Prince a few years back...They are the only company that I can think of that large in Holland.

Good luck with the job!

I was thinking if it is 95,000 that may be about right for Johnson Controls worldwide employment...
