TI Automotive is relocating two of its North American test facilities and investing more than $US2.5 million in its technical centre in Auburn Hills to enhance the efficiency of its worldwide testing capabilities.

The two labs – one in Warren, Michigan, and another in Sanford, Florida – are being transferred to TI Automotive’s Auburn Hills facility.

Each lab tests brake, fuel, air conditioning, heater, engine-oil and transmission-fluid hose assemblies.  In all, 18 positions from the Warren and Sanford facilities are being transferred to Auburn Hills.

TI Automotive’s Caro Test Centre, which conducts full-range testing on fuel-system components, will continue to operate in Caro, Michigan, with increased integration of its activities with the technical centre in Auburn Hills.

The company is investing $1.5 million to transfer the Warren and Sanford laboratories, renovate machinery and upgrade existing Auburn Hills facilities. TI Automotive is earmarking an additional $1 million for further improvements, expansions and new test equipment in Auburn Hills.
