Mahindra Automotive North America (MANA), the North American automotive headquarters of Indian autogiant Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M), has opened a new North American HQ and manufacturing Facility in Metro Detroit. It is first such new OEM facility in Southeast Michigan in over 25 years. The expansion is part of a $230 million investment in Southeast Michigan that also includes a recently-opened warehouse and logistics operation in Pontiac and an existing prototype operation in Troy. In total, the company has grown to 400,000 sq. ft. across three Detroit area facilities.

Mahindra Group Chairman Anand Mahindra, Automotive Division EVP Rajan Wadhera and MANA President and CEO, Rick Haas participated in the facility inauguration along with Michigan Lieutenant Governor Brian Calley and Members of Congress Brenda Lawrence and Dave Trott. The event was also attended by elected officials, business leaders and Mahindra employees. "This is an exciting day for Mahindra, our terrific employees and Detroit. I couldn't be prouder to be here to help open this new facility today," said Anand Mahindra. "This building opening represents our company’s growing presence in North America and locally in the Metro Detroit area where we have tripled our workforce during the past 18 months. We are committed to growing the Mahindra brand in North America and Michigan."

Over the past 18 months, MANA will have tripled its workforce to 250. By 2020, additional planned projects will result in 400 more jobs and another $600 million in local investment over that same period. The new facility will produce an off-highway vehicle which will extend Mahindra's current position in this growing segment. Designed and engineered by MANA, the vehicle promises to be unlike anything currently on the market. "This expansion represents a milestone for us and for Michigan," said Haas. "We started this operation with seven people four years ago -- to be crossing the 250 mark is a testament to the hard work of our employees and what this region has to offer in terms of top automotive talent."
