Our roots in the incubator program gave us many assets we continue to benefit from to this day... the facility, functions, resources, education, connections, networking and most importantly the friendships have all paved the way to our success and continue to be a part of our journey.

Ease Seating Systems

Ease Seating Systems designs and manufactures alternating pressure cushions for a plethora of different markets. How does it work? Ease alternating air system starts with two staggered sets of air bladders that run laterally across the cushion (to prevent leaning left or right). Air gets pumped into the bladder and alternates at different time frequencies to help off-site bedsores and others problems related to sitting too long!

Recor Logo2.png

Recor Co, LLC is a consumer product design and development company that is based in St. Clair, Michigan with the goal of designing environmentally friendly products that are manufactured in the USA.

Record currently has many patent-pending product designs and even more in the initial conceptual design phase. With the potential success of our initial product line, Recor will focus resources and knowledge gained into the next generation products. These next generation products are each capable of being stand-alone products or part of a modular system of products where parts are shared for different specific functions.


Gro-Hoop is a innovative modular plant support system that grows with your plant and flowers one section at a time. As soon as your plant gets too big for one level, you simply add another. This simplifies the growing process and helps insure your plants grow to their full potential. Gro-Hoop started out with nothing more than Minimally Viable Product that turned into a patented product sold all across the US!
