The company, which purchased the former Saline ACH plant in June 2012, has research and development centers in Auburn Hills and Troy as well as two production plants in Sterling Heights. Crain’s quotes industry sources as saying that the new headquarters will be a $30 million development.

The site plan for the headquarters is on the Auburn Hills Planning Commission agenda for its meeting Wednesday at 7 p.m. The general contractor for the building told Crain’s that plans call for a three-story 300,000-square-foot building.
