Mayser invests more than 5 million dollars in larger factory in Belleville, Michigan

Mayser has been producing Safety Technology in Canton, Michigan since March 2012. The strong growth of the company now necessitates the relocation to a larger factory. 

Mayser manufactures anti pinch protection systems for major OEMs in the automotive industry. The company has been recognized for its high standards of quality for example by General Motors with the Supplier Excellence Quality Award 2016. Expansion of the non-automotive division is planned for the coming years

“We are very pleased to be able to bring all divisions together at the new location,” says Julius Rummel, COO at Mayser USA. The company’s fast growth in the USA has already made it necessary to lease an external warehouse, as well as additional offices. To ensure the greatest possible efficiency, it was decided to combine the automotive and non-automotive divisions at one location, for which the company is putting up a new building on a 14.5 acre lot in a customer-friendly location. 

The subsidiary of a German company, Mayser USA was established in 2008 as a sales company, and started its own production in the USA in 2012. Today, the staff in Michigan totals about 140 employees. In addition to production for America’s major automobile manufacturers, Mayser USA also produces and sells Safety Technology and sacrifice mats for non-automotive applications. 

The new building, with an area of about 50,000 ft² fulfills the most recent standards with a modular, barrier-free design. This is not only beneficial to the employees, due to the excellent workplace quality, but also ensures the necessary process reliability. For example, the IT infrastructure is equipped with state-of-the-art cables for future sustainability and the entire building features a high-pressure sprinkler system as well as an electronic access system for the doors. Production takes place in specialized assembly cells with miniature safety edges installed on the interior walls. These safety edges are manufactured in the in-house sensor production facilities, which consist of several injection molding systems, final inspection stations and crimp workplaces.
A kitchen and a large break room were furnished for the employees, with a roofed patio and outdoor seating. The building also features an open, collaborative work area and two large conference rooms.
