Ralco Industries, Inc. is a manufacturer of complex, tight tolerance metal stampings.  During recent years their business has expanded beyond the capacity of their existing facilities.  This existing business as well as a recent expansion into newer technical markets, such as wheel chair manufacturing, will require them to construct this new state-of-the-art facility to house all of their operations under one roof.

The new 124,000 sq. ft. building will be fully air-conditioned for the comfort of their 180 employees.  It will operate on two shifts from 6:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., 5 days a week.

The Planning Commission is scheduled to hold a public hearing to review their plans on Tuesday, May 28th, with a final decision by the City Council on Monday, June 3rd.

We are excited that Ralco Industries, Inc. has chosen to stay in Auburn Hills and grow with us.  The company’s owners could have built this new facility anywhere in the Midwest, but they want to be here.  That’s great news!
