The new location, which features 160 percent more space than Linamar’s previous offices, further positions the company for continued growth in the automotive industry, the company said. It will unify Linamar’s Detroit-based sales team and the McLaren Performance Technologies sales, marketing and engineering teams to provide customers with advanced support in the design, testing and analysis of engine transmission and chassis systems. Linamar acquired McLaren in 2003.

“Our new Automotive Customer Center will increase the communication and collaboration between engineering and sales, making us more efficient and more in tune with our customers’ needs,” said Jim Jarrell, Linamar president and COO. “Ultimately, our customers will be the biggest winners from this move.”

Linamar’s Automotive Customer Center currently houses 65 associates in engineering, sales, human resources, finance and administrative positions. The company plans to significantly expand its team of engineers in the coming years to keep pace with its expected growth. The space has capacity for 100 employees.

Based in Guelph, Ontario, Canada, Linamar designs, develops and manufactures precision machined components and modules for engine, transmission and chassis systems for primarily the North American and European automotive marketplace. In 2004, Linamar’s sales topped $1.6 billion USD and the company is focused on growing business to $10 billion in sales by the year 2020.
