Aluminum Wheel Manufacturer Relocates to Southfield, Adds 75 Jobs


LANSING — Superior Industries International is relocating its global headquarters to the city of Southfield, with support from the Michigan Strategic Fund.

“Superior Industries’ investment will mean additional well-paying jobs in Michigan for years to come,” says Gov. Rick Snyder. “Michigan is America’s comeback state and this new headquarters tells global companies that Michigan holds great opportunities for growing their business.”

Super Industries is the largest manufacturer of aluminum wheels for passenger cars and light-duty vehicles in North America. The relocation, from California, is expected to generate $2.5 million in new private investment and add 75 new jobs, according to the Michigan Economic Development Co.

As a result, the company has been awarded a $900,000 Michigan Business Development Program performance-based grant.

“Superior Industries’ decision to locate its global headquarters here underscores Michigan’s business-friendly environment and a manufacturing talent pool that can compete with any region in the world,” says Steve Arwood, Michigan Economic Deveolpment Co., CEO. “This investment will provide excellent employment opportunities for Michigan residents and will create a long-term positive impact on the local economy.”
