Martinrea International discussed details of the ground-breaking of a new technical center in Auburn Hills, Michigan. The 110,000ft2 facility is expected to be completed by summer 2017 and will allow Martinrea to combine its sales and engineering office, which is currently in Troy, with its testing labs in a single location. The new building will also allow the company to expand its research and development activities.

“This is an exciting time for our company,” said Pat D’Eramo, Martinrea president and CEO. “We have significantly grown our business and employee base in the USA and Michigan over the past decade; we are proud to be here, and we want to thank the city, the county and the state for their support.”

The project is being supported by a US$420,000 performance-based grant from the state of Michigan, and an eight-year property tax abatement valued at US$852,000 from the city of Auburn Hills. The new facility will house 160 employees initially and is expected to create 60 additional jobs.
