CONNERSVILLE, INDIANA—Stant Corporation announced this week the opening of its new Tech Center in Rochester Hills, Michigan.
Located at 1955 Enterprise Drive, the Tech Center includes office space for technical and sales services. It also houses laboratory and testing equipment supporting fuel vapor and thermal management products.
Stant also began the process of closing its manufacturing facility in Romeo, Michigan, scheduled for fourth quarter 2015. The workforce was notified of the pending action in late 2014. The majority of production is transferring to a Stant UAW facility in Connersville, Ind.
“Business decisions that affect the livelihood of our employees are very difficult,” said Inacio Moriguchi, Stant President and COO. “We are excited about our Rochester Hills Tech Center that will better serve our customers and business development initiatives. The Romeo plant closing is a product of a long and extensive footprint study for our global operations and ability to compete, and was not taken lightly. We acknowledge and appreciate the many years of service Romeo employees gave to Stant.”
