Mahr Inc., a global manufacturer of precision measurement equipment and solutions, recently announced plans for the grand opening of its new Midwest Regional Customer Center. Located in the Detroit area in Wixom, MI, the newly constructed 7,000 ft2 facility wholly reflects Mahr’s regional strategy for the Americas: bringing its expertise closer to customers. As a leader in measurement technologies, Mahr’s facility features an extensive demonstration area, fully equipped with the very latest machines, systems and precision gages from the Mahr portfolio. Furthermore, the site has been specified to provide training and conference spaces, together with office spaces for the Mahr team.
“I am excited to continue to expand the presence and reach of Mahr in the United States in to 2019,” said Brett Green, CEO & president, Mahr Inc. “Coupled with the recent opening of our Southeast Regional Customer Center (located in Greenville, SC), this represents a significant investment and one that I believe our customers and partners will be delighted to take advantage of. Our Americas headquarters remains in Providence, RI. Our facility there is home to more than 170 employees, where we continue our tradition of proudly manufacturing in the United States. With the new Detroit area customer center, we have the capacity to grow our existing team based in Michigan; and most importantly, we satisfy the requirements of our customers to be local.”
Mahr continues to strengthen its North American presence by adding this second facility to the area. The existing Midwest Regional facility, located in the Cincinnati area, was opened in 2009.
