GS Engineering | Houghton, MI

100_2183GS Engineering was started in September 2002 by Glen Simula. He hired 2 additional engineers and one MTU engineering student. GSE was the anchor tenant in the MTU Business Incubator, starting with one room and growing to occupy the entire first floor. In March 2008, GSE moved to its own new 14000 sq ft building on US 41 just south of MTU.

GSE is an agile engineering consulting business for military ground vehicles – both for the US Army and prime contractors. In 2005, GSE was selected as one of the inaugural Michigan 50 Companies to watch, and then as the Michigan Government Contractor or of the Year in 2010. GSE has received over 300 contracts during this time, including 9 SBIR awards.
