JR Automation, a global systems integrator based in Holland and a subsidiary of Hitachi, has opened a newly built, 227,500-square-foot facility in Lake Orion, set to become the company’s primary location in the metro Detroit area.

This facility will take on large automation projects, consolidating the previously leased facilities in both Pontiac, Shelby Township, and Sterling Heights. Located at 1427 Brown Road, JR Automation’s newest location is less than a half mile east of its existing 1000 Brown Road facility, which will now focus on smaller footprint automation projects while also expanding its machine shop capabilities.

“The enormous amount of manufacturing space this new building provides confirms our investment and commitment within this community and our availability to take on more work,” says Brian Rogus, vice president of the esys division at JR Automation. “The consolidation of our teams and work to within two blocks will allow us to be more efficient and reduce our overall time and travel costs.”

JB Donaldson and Orion Township played key roles in supporting the development and ensuring the project remained on time despite being challenged with the pandemic and facing supply chain and labor shortage issues.

“The construction of this facility has been quite an undertaking. It has the largest footprint of any facility that JR Automation has ever constructed,” says Lucy Ballesteros, EHS and facilities specialist at JR Automation. “We truly appreciate the support received from our partners including Orion Township and JB Donaldson.”

The facility is operational and interested customers are encouraged to contact their JR Automation representative or email solutions@jrautomation.com to schedule a tour.
