Posted by – Steve Cohen, Director of Community Development

We wish to report that construction is progressing on the new 75,050 sq. ft. warehouse and distribution facility for Korean-based Shield Material Handing.  The project is located on the north and east side of North Atlantic Boulevard, at the terminus of Continental Drive.

Shield Material Handling, formerly known as DLS Detroit, provides complete logistics services to Tier-One automotive suppliers.  The new building will provide warehousing and distribution services for products and parts for automotive suppliers in the region.

Steel erection for the building shell is expected to begin prior to Thanksgiving.  Weather permitting, the $5.7 million development is anticipated to be complete by June 2016.
