Nexteer Automotive announces global headquarters move

Posted: Updated:

Nexteer Automotive announced plans on Wednesday to move its global headquarters to Auburn Hills.

President and COO Laurent Bresson said the move would take place in the second quarter of 2016.

“We’re a big part, and I believe the best example of Chinese investment in the North American auto industry,” Bresson said. “We are guided by strong global leaders and fully supported by our largest shareholder. This commitment by our Chinese ownership and management combined with the talented people who know the history and DNA of the company, continues to nurture new innovation and growth.”

Nexteer has a global workforce of more than 12,000, 5,000 of which are based in Michigan.

“The location of our global headquarters in Auburn Hills provides us with a platform for long-term success and demonstrates our commitment to the state of Michigan and its talented auto industry workforce,” Bresson said. “This stand-alone location will position us closer to our business partners, industry experts and will continue enhancing the Nexteer brand.”

Since China’s AVIC Automotive became a controlling shareholder in 2010, Nexteer has added approximately 2,000 jobs in Michigan and invested more than $400 million in the state. The new headquarters will house approximately 150 employees who will be a combination of new and current Nexteer employees.
