Metallurgical High Vacuum Corporation (MHV), an equipment sales and remanufacturer of vacuum process equipment, was founded in Holland, Michigan, in 1981 by Geoff Humberstone starting as a consulting business, selling engineering expertise to the high vacuum industry. The business was expanded in 1985 to provide comprehensive design, engineering and support on a wide range of high-vacuum equipment, including remanufacturing of most OEM brand pumps, diffusion pumps, boosters, blowers, and auxillary vacuum equipment.
To accommodate growth, the company was relocated to a new 5000-ft2 plant in Douglas, Michigan. With a fast-growing reputation for high-quality work and creative problem solving, MHV outgrew this space and constructed a modern fully climate-controlled 16,000-ft2 plant, in 1996, on a 17-acre site near Fennville, Michigan. The Fennville plant features an 80 x 200-ft open bay with 30-ft ceilings and two 10-ton overhead cranes that access the entire working floor space. A 30 x 60-ft building was added in 1998 for warehousing cores and fixtures. In 2006, a 2,400-ft2 Engineering and Business office space was added to support the growing demand for 3D product design and engineering support. Currently, the facility has an additional 2560-ft2 storage building constructed in 2013, that houses cores and finished goods.
