GKN Plans New U.S. Headquarters
GKN Driveline and GKN Sinter Metals are expanding their automotive operations and moving to a new regional headquarters for the Americas in the Detroit suburb of Auburn Hills in early 2014. The new site will also house employees from GKN's Land Systems and North American Services groups. Construction of the 168,000-square-foot facility is scheduled to begin on an 11.2-acre site this month. GKN's new headquarters will provide additional space for state-of-the-art testing and validation equipment along with additional engineering design areas for driveline and sinter-metal products.
