dSPACE Opens New Facility in New Hudson, Michigan, USA
Expansion extends production, testing and shipping capabilities
  • More space to handle production for increasing demand for HIL systems
  • Capacity to build large mechanical test benches
Wixom, Michigan, June 19, 2018: dSPACE has expanded its North American operations with the opening of a new production, testing and shipping facility in New Hudson, Michigan. The building officially opened for business in May. With the expansion, the company is now better positioned to meet growing demands for the production of hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation systems, among other key product lines.
 
More space to handle production for increasing demand for HIL systems
The entire Hardware Engineering Design and Production group has relocated to the 21,000 square foot facility, which has been retrofitted with modern design elements to support collaboration and teamwork. The floor plan is divided into 5 main sections that include: a HIL production lab, a testing lab, an office area for Engineering, an inventory storage room, and a large shipping area. Other building features include ESD floors, special lighting and optimized air flow. The facility is located at 29402 Lyon Pines Drive, New Hudson, Michigan, 48165, in the Lyon Pines Business Center. It is within 5 miles of dSPACE Inc. North American headquarters at 50131 Pontiac Trail, Wixom, Michigan, 48393.
 
Capacity to build large mechanical test benches
"The new facility gives us the opportunity to better meet growing demands for our HIL business, while freeing up space for future development within our existing office on Pontiac Trail in Wixom,” said Dr. Peter Waeltermann, president of dSPACE Inc. “It will also allow us to build and test large mechanical test benches (e.g. steering), which is a developing area of interest among our customers. We are excited to be able to offer this capability to our customers.”

“We are pleased to be able to give our technicians a modern and expanded work space, making it easier for them to maneuver around their systems on new workstations with better lighting and more storage,” said HIL Production Manager Philipp Kluck. “A proper loading dock and a large shipping area will allow for much easier handling of bigger deliveries.”
