FEV North America, Inc. to build new vehicle test center in Auburn Hills

New facility will expand campus to three buildings, will house state-of-the-art vehicle emissions chassis dyno

FEV North America, Inc. (FEV) announced today that it will start the expansion of its campus, with the construction of an all-new building. Initially, the facility will house a vehicle lab and state-of-the-art vehicle emissions dynamometer, expanding its vehicle development capabilities. The next step will create additional office space and lab facilities. The new site adds to the FEV campus in Auburn Hills, making a total of three buildings. The announcement is being made in conjunction with MEDC, which assisted in laying the groundwork for the new facility. The announcement was made by Patrick Hupperich, president and CEO of FEV North America Inc. (FEV) at a groundbreaking ceremony attended by Michigan Governor Rick Snyder, MEDC and local officials, and FEV executives.

"This is an exciting addition for FEV and for Southeast Michigan," Gov. Snyder said. "This development will contribute to our growing economy and continue to solidify Michigan's place as a global automotive hub."

At 25,600 sq.ft. when complete, the campus expansion will create approximately 250 additional jobs, bringing the total number of employees at its Auburn Hills campus to about 750. The company is investing more than $27 million into the facility, and has received a performance-based grant from the Michigan Business Development Program. Completion of the Vehicle Test Center is expected by April 2018.

“From its founding, FEV has built its reputation by providing state-of-the-art  facilities needed to support product developments ,” said Hupperich. “The addition of the vehicle emissions chassis dyno represents our effort to provide a complete, one-stop-shop to powertrain and vehicle development, and keeps us in step in meeting customers’ needs.”
