Incoe Corporation USA announced the successful move of three facilities in the Metro Detroit area into their new 138,000 12,820 m² global headquarters, which took place throughout the month of August.

Formerly headquartered in Troy, Michigan, the new facility is located within Oakland Technology Park at 2850 High Meadow Circle, Auburn Hills, Michigan 48326. Bob Fons, Plant Manager for Incoe commented, “We planned the move in as much detail as we could in the time that we had. We executed the plan successfully, and over the four week move of manufacturing and office equipment we were always operational in some capacity. Hot runner systems were continually being designed, manufactured, inspected and assembled throughout the entire moving process.”

Developed by General Development Company, the $20 million facility is designed to improve operational efficiency within the organisation by situating dependent processes in closer proximity to one another. Within the office area, open collaboration spaces along high traffic pathways have been created to provide casual meeting spaces. The 85,000 7,900 m² manufacturing area was designed around a central space containing Quality Control, Inventory Management and shop offices to maximise process flow.

Ghafari Associates was the project consultant for Incoe during layout and build of the new global headquarters facility. Ghafari helped customize the manufacturing layout for Incoe’s specific needs, and also provided interior office design recommendations. Courtney Seres, VP Corporate Administration and building project manager for Incoe said, “We couldn’t have done this without the expertise of Ghafari. We know hot runner systems but we’re not facility experts. We know what we wanted for our employee experience inside the new building, and Ghafari helped realize these expectations with guidance on best practices for current facility trends. The results are stunning.”

The project reached its completion during the year that Incoe celebrates their 60th anniversary. Incoe was founded in 1958 by Alex Seres, who reportedly developed and patented the first commercial hot runner nozzle.
