RoboVent, a supplier of air filtration systems to automotive and other industries, is moving to a larger facility in Macomb County to handle recent growth.
Founded in 1989 and headquartered in Sterling Heights, RoboVent will be moving from its 54,000 square-foot facility in the city to a new 90,000 square-foot plant in Chesterfield Township.
RoboVent signed a 15-year lease at the speculative building that will include a $1 million machinery and equipment investment.
RoboVent has twice been recognized by Inc.com as one of the 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in America, most recently in 2017.
This move results in a $9.9 million investment by both the property owner and RoboVent.
By utilizing the 90,000 square feet, RoboVent will occupy about half of the Chesterfield Township building.
Macomb County Planning and Economic Development helped the property owner apply for two P.A. 198 Industrial Facilities Tax Abatement certificates – one for real property and the other for the investment build out. Both were approved by Chesterfield Township.
The move results in 84 new jobs in Chesterfield Township, which includes eight new positions and 76 employees transferring from Sterling Heights.
