Daifuku North America Holding Company, a leading provider of material handling solutions, will be moving its headquarters from Farmington Hills, Mich., to Novi, Mich., in 2017.
The new location will be north of 13 Mile Road at 30100 Cabot Drive, Novi MI 48377. Daifuku North America had a ground-breaking ceremony last week. The move to the new building, four miles from the current location, will take place in the third quarter of 2017. The new headquarters will have an in-house demonstration center showcasing the newest innovations and state-of-the-art Factory Acceptance Testing center.
“The Metro Detroit area offers competitive engineering talent that we’ve had the pleasure of working with for many decades” said Aki Nishimura, president and CEO of Daifuku North America. “We believe that Southeast Michigan is the right location for our growing business, but we need an updated building with state-of-the-art facilities to fit our growing global company.”
The new 76,889-square-foot facility will house more than 300 employees including engineers, project managers, sales, customer service and administrative staff. Daifuku North America will be creating 85 new jobs in Michigan before 2019. The majority of the jobs will be created at the Novi location with the balance at the manufacturing facilities in Boyne City and Harbor Springs, Mich.
