Eckhart Inc. is opening a 47,000-square-foot tech center in Warren with an expansion plan that includes employing 170 or more workers in the next two years.
Advanced Technology Center at 6115 E. 13 Mile Road is hosting a grand opening Tuesday morning.
The Watertown Township-based machining manufacturer plans to use the new facility to engineer and assemble the next generation of Autocraft autonomous guided carts as well as operate a 3-D printing lab there. About 60 workers are stationed there now.
Work began in November on the new location. The company invested more than $1 million into the property and served as its own general contractor.
