Cepton Inc., a high-performance micro motion technology (MMT) lidar solutions company based in San Jose, Calif., announced today the opening of its new corporate office in Troy, which will serve as the company’s automotive hub as it continues and expands its engagements with OEMs.
Cepton has had presence in Detroit since its founding in 2016. Renovation of the new facility began in 2021 to accommodate the team’s rapid growth, when Cepton first announced its ADAS lidar series production award with OEM General Motors.
The new office will house members of Cepton’s senior leadership team as well as product, program management, business development, application engineering, sales, and corporate marketing personnel.
Cepton continues to proactively hire for position in both Detroit as well as Silicon Valley with about twenty current openings in hardware and software engineering, program management, application, safety, quality and reliability.
“I’m incredibly proud that our Silicon Valley company, Cepton, has earned Detroit’s trust,” says Jun Pei, Cepton’s co-founder and CEO. “As we continue to expand our engagements with all of the top ten global OEMs, locating our experienced team in Detroit will serve us well. Our expanded footprint will help us reach our goal of making lidar a standard safety feature in the cars of today and the key component in the autonomous vehicles of the future.”
The office is located at 5445 Corporate Dr., Suite 170 in Troy. In addition to its San Jose headquarters and Detroit office, Cepton also has a presence in Germany, Canada, Japan, India, and China to support a growing global customer base.
“At Cepton we strive to make lidar a must-have ‘auto part’ in every passenger car. This cannot be done without leaning in and working closely with our automotive customers,” says Brunno Moretti, vice president of product at Cepton.
“Having a strong presence in Detroit not only enables us to keep up with the latest trend in the industry but also makes us part of that trend — we are here to demonstrate how lidar is essential to the future of mobility, with our product experts driving informative communications and our application engineers working in the field. I’m sure our talented team will excel in this beautiful new office. We also welcome everyone to pay us a visit here and check out the latest developments at Cepton.”
