HDT Automotive Solutions, a Michigan company that specializes in fluid-handling systems and precision aluminum parts, announced the appointment of Patrick Paige as CEO. Paige will be based in Michigan and will report to the company’s board of directors.

“We are very happy that Patrick is joining our company, allowing us to continue serving our customers in the conventional areas but also to help us develop exciting new products for evolving segments such as hybrid and electric vehicles,” says Walter Zonta, former CEO of HDT Automotive.

Paige comes to HDT Automotive from Acument Global Technologies Inc. (AGT), where he was president and CEO and responsible for overseeing the company’s engineering, manufacturing, and distribution operations in the global transportation, industrial construction, and aerospace industries.

“We are excited to welcome Patrick as we embark on HDT Automotive’s next stage of growth,” says Vincent Fandozzi, head of Ardian North American Direct Buyouts, a company that created HDT Automotive when it acquired and merged Dynamic Technologies and Huron in 2017. “We look forward to supporting Patrick and the world-class HDT Automotive team in the years ahead as they continue to serve HDT customers with innovative products and superior support.”

Paige has worked for suppliers including Johnson Controls Inc. and American Axle and Manufacturing (AAM), where he was CEO of AAM’s UK-based subsidiary Albion Automotive.

“As CEO of HDT Automotive, I am excited to be at the helm of this global leader of automotive fluid transfer systems,” says Paige. “HDT Automotive is uniquely positioned to deliver products, technologies, and services to its world-class customer base by utilizing and leveraging best practices throughout the company. I am grateful to have such a deeply committed team. The input, engagement and guidance of all HDT Automotive employees will play a vital role in this transformational and exciting process.”

Paige holds both a bachelor’s and law degree from Michigan State University.

HDT Automotive employs more than 4,000 people at 10 manufacturing facilities across the United States, Canada, Mexico, Italy, United Kingdom, Poland, Hungary, and China. The company serves the North American, European, and Asian automotive markets.
