FANUC America Corporation, the leading supplier of robotics, CNC systems, ROBOMACHINEs and Industrial IoT solutions has announced plans to construct a new facility in Auburn Hills, MI that will be used for engineering, product development, manufacturing and warehousing.
“Robotics and automation are key drivers of manufacturing competitiveness,” said Mike Cicco, president & CEO, FANUC America. “We’re looking forward to expanding our facilities here in Oakland County to keep pace with the growing demand for automation.”
FANUC’s products are applied in a wide range of industries including automotive, aerospace, consumer products, food and pharmaceuticals to name a few. Since 1982, the company’s line of painting robots, and a variety of automation software products have been designed and built in Michigan. With the addition of the new North Campus building, FANUC America’s three facilities in Michigan total 1,155,525 square feet.
FANUC America’s North Campus is scheduled to open in the fall of 2019; the company will hold an official groundbreaking ceremony later this year.
The $51 million expansion, expected to create 100 jobs, received a $1 million Michigan Business Development Program performance-based grant. The Auburn Hills location was selected over a competing location in Illinois, and the city has offered a property tax abatement valued at $3,504,000 in support of the project.
