Colliers International, a global real estate services company with operations in 68 countries, including an office in Southfield, today announced the construction of an 80,000-square-foot manufacturing facility at 41144 Concept Drive in Plymouth Township.
The building will become home to global surface solutions provider Oerlikon Metco Inc., which was represented by Collier in the transaction. The Switzerland-based industrial and technology solutions group plans to use the facility to produce advanced titanium alloys and high-end thermal spray powders, which will then be packaged and shipped to automotive, aerospace, agricultural, and medical consumers around the world.
The project was coordinated between Oerlikon Metco, and Kirco/Kirco Manix in Troy, which recently broke ground on the new manufacturing and R&D facility. Kirco consummated a long-term lease with Oerlikon Metco, which will begin following the facility’s completion in spring 2018.
The building is expected to accommodate approximately 70 employees and provide over $50 million in investment into the community.
