Lighting and electronics expert Hella opened a new regional headquarters in Northville, Mich., replacing its Plymouth Township headquarters of 20 years.
The new space will consolidate purchasing, sales, information, and finance operations for 350 employees.
“The opening of our state-of-the-art new headquarters further validates our commitment to the North American market and opens the doors for endless opportunities in the future,” said Steve Lietaert, president of Hella corporate center USA. “With an open layout and ideal location, it gives us the space, connectivity, and resources we need to optimize efficiencies and expand our reach in the region.”
The new facilities will have an in-house test lab that will be ISO 17025-certified, capable of performing EMC, vibration and environmental validation testing.
It will also house a lighting tunnel equipped with a customized goniophotometer providing industry-leading measurement technology, which will be certified to IATF 16949 and ISO/IEC 17025 and will be able to support product development as well as validation testing.
