Froude Names Novi Facility as Global Headquarters


Froude Inc., a technology company that creates engine testing systems for the automotive, gas turbine, aerospace, marine, and industrial markets, has named its Novi-based support and manufacturing center as its global brand headquarters.

Froude Engineering Limited, located in Worcester, England, has also been named as a second manufacturing and support center.

Both facilities will support the company’s Go Power Systems portable engine dynamometer product line in addition to the Froude product offerings. Dynamometers, common in the automotive industry, are machines that measure engine force, torque, or power.

“It is our goal to continue the technical performance and quality reputation synonymous with our brand,” says Andy Sadlon, group president of Froude Engineering Limited and Froude Inc.

He says the corporate mission is to continue to provide Froude engine testing products, including design, installation, commissioning, and aftermarket support on a global platform, and that having two primary manufacturing and support centers allows for the best customer service.

The company’s other global support centers in China, India, and Brazil focus on regional aftermarket maintenance and support.
