Cequent Moves Headquarters to Larger Site
Cequent Performance Products, makers of such name brands as Reese, Draw-Tite, Bulldog, Fulton, ROLA and Tekonsha, has relocated its headquarters into a larger facility in Plymouth, Mich. According to a press release, the move was completed on March 14.
The company said that the new building boosts Cequent’s product testing laboratory by nearly doubling the overall square footage and doubling the amount of bay doors. Cequent acquired one-third of the entire building and has an option for future expansion. To make room for new employees, the office space was increased from 25,000 to 31,000 square feet.
New state-of-the-art technology, such as a noise reduction system, faster Internet and video conferencing is being incorporated into the new facility. Cequent said that all of the lighting in the building was upgraded following a program that the local power company offers for energy efficiency. Besides shrinking Cequent’s carbon footprint, this will also reduce their electric bill by at least 30%.
Keeping an emphasis on saving resources, the new facility has an on-site recycling program for metal, glass, plastic, paper and corrugated board. Cequent has also contracted an outside company for the recycling of batteries and light bulbs.
