PLYMOUTH, MI – Cequent Performance Products, makers of such name brands as Reese, Draw-Tite, Bulldog, Fulton, ROLA and Tekonsha, has relocated their headquarters into a larger facility. This move was completed on March 14. Their 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 in the new facility. All of the lighting in the building was upgraded following a program that the local power company has for energy efficiency. Besides shrinking Cequent’s carbon footprint, this will also reduce their electric bill by at least 30 percent.
Keeping an emphasis on saving resources, their new facility has an onsite 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.
