Güdel Expands Operations in Troy, Michigan

As Güdel expands its sales and engineering teams it draws heavily from an area known as Automation Alley (a region of Southeast Michigan which includes Troy).

Güdel opened its Troy engineering office in January 2014 to be closer to customers for its press automation and powertrain business units. "It has been a very successful strategy for Güdel to locate engineering offices where we can collaborate closely and easily with key customers and partners," said Stefan Nilsson, CEO of Güdel, Inc.


Metro Detroit, especially the Troy area, is dense with line builders, robot manufacturers and systems integrators, according to Nilsson. "Our office space is now doubled since last year. This reflects growing demand for highly engineered, heavy-duty linear motion technology from Güdel."

As Güdel expands its sales and engineering teams it draws heavily from an area known as Automation Alley (a region of Southeast Michigan which includes Troy). Güdel, Inc. employs 89 workers in Michigan between its Troy engineering offices and Ann Arbor manufacturing campus, and Güdel Group has more than 1,140 employees worldwide.
