HELLA Expanding U.S. Headquarters, Technical Center In Michigan

The new 115,000-square-foot building in Northville, MI will feature modern design and collaborative open workspaces.

Automotive supplier HELLA will reinforce its presence in the U.S. when it opens a new administrative and technical center in Northville, MI, at the beginning of 2019. The new, modernized facility will be at least 115,000 square feet and will address the company’s continued growth as well as provide flexibility to adapt to dynamic marketplace shifts in the coming years. An official groundbreaking for the facility was held in November.

The company’s new U.S. headquarters and technical center in Northville will replace its existing U.S. headquarters in Plymouth Township, approximately three miles away. Within the next two years, the number of employees at the facility is expected to expand from 350 to approximately 400. The focus of activities is on developing electronics products and lighting technology solutions. The location also houses company functions, such as purchasing, sales, information management as well as finance and controlling for the North American region.

“With the new location, we will create an important foundation for further pursuing our growth path in the North American market,” says 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.”

The new location will implement a flexible and open office concept with modern office equipment, project rooms, meeting areas, lounge and cafeteria sections as well as fitness activities for employees. To bring the project to fruition, HELLA has partnered with Michigan-based REDICO as the developer, Biddison Architecture + Design and Amson Development.
