After a few years away, we’re excited to report that Turkey-based Orhan Automotive has moved back to the City of Auburn Hills. They have fully renovated the building located at 1160 Centre Road, which is now their new North American Headquarters and Technical Center. It will house their executive, engineering, sales, design and information technology departments.
This is a great example of a clean industrial operation. No manufacturing, other than prototyping, takes place in this facility that supports the development of plastic and rubber tubing, fluid transfer systems and engineered assemblies primarily for the automotive industry. Khalif Alyameni, IT Operations Manager, said they’re happy to be back in Auburn Hills and are setting a course to become industry leaders in fuel fillers and turbo lines.
The company purchased the building last year and began planning for the now-complete building façade addition and interior upgrades. They have created an inviting, modern, light-filled workspace that intentionally reflects the aesthetic of their World Headquarters in Bursa, Turkey.
Interior renovations included the removal and replacement of walls. Moving walls opened the floor plan and allowed them to reconfigure the work spaces. They also created a spacious, bright and super-clean shop area. Energy-efficiency was added throughout the updated facility. Lastly, the front exterior building façade was completely reconstructed and updated with new windows, fresh paint, new signage, and landscaping.
We’re pleased to welcome Orhan Automotive back to Auburn Hills and wish them much success.
