Life at Gentex
Our collaborative culture is founded on a devotion to quality and innovation.
We all share an ownership mentality and embrace an unpretentious management style that fosters an inclusive environment where team members can perform at their best, support each other professionally, and continue to learn and grow. We’re passionate about what we do and how we do it.
Gentex is perfectly situated in Zeeland, near the scenic shores of Lake Michigan, just 30 minutes away from metropolitan Grand Rapids. While West Michigan stands out for its natural beauty and outdoor lifestyle, it’s also known for its vibrant economy, cultural activities, and a nightlife punctuated by a profusion of restaurants and craft breweries.
Community Give-Back Program
Community Share is a charitable program run by Gentex employees to give back to the West Michigan community. Team members can donate a portion of their paycheck to Community Share, organize on-site fundraisers, or spend time volunteering at the organization. At the end of the year, the Community Share Board allocates the donation money to local organizations based on need and number of people served. Both long-term solutions and short-term assistance is needed in our community.
