Troy, Mich., October 18, 2017

KIRCO MANIX has begun construction on a new vehicle test center for FEV North America, expanding its campus in Auburn Hills, Mich. to three buildings. FEV is investing more than $27 million into the 25,600 square-foot facility, which FEV says will create approximately 250 additional jobs, for a total of 750 jobs at its Auburn Hills campus.

“As a Michigan-based business, we are excited to team up with FEV on its new facility, as it expands its Auburn Hills campus and invests in the local community,” said Adam Manix, director – business development for KIRCO MANIX. “We pride ourselves on being a true partner with the ability to provide a unique, full-service approach through every phase of the project from design to construction.”

 

According to FEV, the new facility will strengthen FEV’s effort to provide a complete, one-stop-shop for powertrain and vehicle development. The building will house a vehicle lab, state-of-the-art vehicle emissions dynamometer, office space and lab facilities. The facility is expected to be completed by April 2018.
