Replacing its previous U.S. headquarters in Plymouth Township, which was home to its operations for more than 20 years, the new space also replaces two local satellite offices, consolidating operations under one roof. 

The nearly 115,000-square-foot bi-level facility is boasts a modern, accredited in-house test lab that will be ISO 17025-certified and capable of performing EMC, vibration and environmental validation testing, according to the company. The facility also will 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.

HELLA’s new facility features a collaborative and flexible, open-concept work environment with modern office equipment, along with a myriad of focus rooms and meeting spaces to meet the needs of all employees and customers, the company noted. Accentuated with unique lighting fixtures and surrounded by natural light, the space also houses a fitness center and Plum Market cafeteria, among other amenities.
