Lenze opens Michigan office, expands business in automotive industry

Lenze Americas is pleased to announce the opening of a new office location in Novi, Michigan. “Lenze’s new office location will create a dynamic and modern workplace for the innovative work that our employees are doing to deliver a diverse range of solutions for vehicle manufacturing,” said Chuck Edwards, president, Lenze. “Automotive manufacturers look to Lenze to provide ideal drive and automation technology systems, allowing reduced set-up times, resulting in higher plant productivity. We are delighted to have a presence in Michigan, home of the automotive industry.”

As Lenze continues to expand their business operations in the automotive industry, John Slayton, manager, Automotive Business Development group for Lenze, will manage the new location. Slayton is responsible for strategic development of automotive end-user and OEM customers. He will support industry-focused efforts in the sales regions, engaging with the global automotive focus industries team. The office opening in Michigan follows recent expansion of Lenze’s presence in the Midwest. In 2012, Lenze opened an assembly and logistics facility in Illinois which supports electro-mechanical product manufacturing operations for the Americas region.

Lenze products are found in many industries including automotive, packaging, material handling and logistics, robotics, and commercial equipment.  The company recently announced an almost four percent increase in sales for FY14 (year ending April 30, 2014). “Through investments in locations, production capacities, and our international engineering capabilities, we are continuously providing new opportunities to enable customer success,” adds Edwards.
