SRG Global has completed its Innovation Centre located in Taylor, Michigan, featuring areas for prototyping, testing and scale-up experimentation.
The 6,460-square-foot (600-square-metre) Innovation Centre is opposite the company's 63,000-square-foot (5,850-square-meter) Advanced Development Centre.
"This investment further reinforces our commitment to customers and society by expanding our research and development footprint," said SRG Global Engineering & Innovation, VP David Dunford.
"The Innovation Centre enables us to focus on creating value through products and processes by allowing us to experiment, disrupt the status quo and discover the unmet needs of our customers."
According to Dunford, the Innovation Centre complements the Advanced Development Centre by fusing concept development and product validation processes.
"This new facility will help us expand our global R & D capabilities from a strong base of chemical, mechanical and industrial engineers to material scientists, physicists and electrical and lighting engineers," said SRG global director of innovation, James DeLaHoussaye.
"This will support our vision of providing engineering solutions and our goal of value added functional integration."
As a leading global manufacturer, SRG Global is a Tier1 interior and exterior trim supplier, providing solutions for the automotive and commercial truck industries.
