Automotive lighting and electronics supplier Hella is opening a new administrative and technical centre down the road from its soon-to-be former U.S. headquarters.
Ground was broken in November 2017 and it’s expected that the new 115,000 sq. ft. facility will open in early 2019 in Northville, Mich. with a modern design that includes more open and collaborative workspaces. The company is expecting to expand its workforce from 350 to about 400 employees. Purchasing, sales, information management, finance and controlling for the North American region will be housed out of this location.
Its current headquarters are about three miles away in Plymouth.
“With the new location, we will create an important foundation for further pursuing our growth path in the North American market,” said Steve Lietaert, president of Hella Corporate Center USA. “We will have more space for required additional resources while also being able to further optimize the work environment for our employees.”
