NORTHVILLE, MI — Yesterday, global automotive supplier ZF officially opened the 85,000 square-foot expansion of its Lapeer, Mich., facility. ZF has owned the facility since 1999.
With the expansion, the plant, which will provide suspension components for domestic automakers, now totals 160,000-square-feet. The company said it expects to create 75 to 100 new jobs with the expansion.
“This expansion is a key step in our chassis and suspension business within North America,” said Jim Stacey, president and COO, ZF Chassis Technology Division. “It allows us to create capacity within the division and prepare for future business.”
The Lapeer plant recently received ISO/TS 16949 certification, and was certified ISO 14001 during 2001.
