Auto Supplier BLM Group USA to Expand, Relocate Headquarters in Wixom


BLM Group USA, a global manufacturer and supplier of tube and sheet metal processing equipment, will move to a new 75,000-square-foot headquarters in Wixom next spring.

The new facility, which is double the size of the company’s current headquarters in Wixom, will be located at 46850 Cartier Dr., and will house more than 70 employees. The company is the North American headquarters of BLM Group, which is based in Italy.

The new facility will feature a showroom that will display the company’s product line, an expanded training area, a demo area for hands-on displays of technology, an administration office, a finance department, and a R&D office.

“Our new headquarters and tech center is a testament to the growth that we have realized over the past several years,” says Jeffrey Ahrstrom, president and COO of BLM Group USA. “The showroom alone is as large as our current building.”

BLM Group, which has been operating for more than 50 years, manufactures machines for laser cutting, bending, end forming, and measurement. The company has 500 employees around the world.
