Holland Bowl Mill, Inc.
Manufacturing, Production & Wholesale
The Holland Bowl Mill was started in 1926 by Chester VanTongeren and to this day is still owned and operated by Chester's relatives. The current president and owner of Holland Bowl Mill is Dave Gier, Chester's grandson. The bowl mill is located in Holland Michigan, near the shores of beautiful Lake Michigan. Because of increasing demand, plans were developed to move and expand the bowl mill in the summer of 2000. With over a year of planning, moving, designing new equipment, and training new craftsmen, the company opened the doors to a new bowl mill production facility in March 2002. The Holland Bowl Mill is now the best and largest solid wood bowl production facility in the world, making beautiful solid hardwood bowls of the highest quality, the same way they were made over 150 years ago. The Holland Bowl Mill prides itself not only in the quality of its bowls, but the great additional feature that they are American made in today's climate of imported products. The process used to create our hand fashioned bowls is the same method used for over one hundred years and takes nearly a month to complete. The Holland Bowl Mill crafts their bowls from American hardwoods including Beech, Cherry, Walnut, Red Oak and Hard Maple. Being environmentally friendly is an ongoing component of our business and is considered in all decisions in the production of wood products.
