Sweden-Based Henrob Group Opens Manufacturing Plant In New Hudson, Michigan

06/30/2016
Henrob Group, a brand within the 143-year old Swedish-based Atlas Copco Industrial Assembly Solutions Division in the Industrial Technique Business Area, opened its new 125,000 square foot self-piercing rivet production facility in New Hudson, Michigan.

Established in 1985, Henrob designs and manufactures self-piercing rivets and rivet installation systems to provide assembly joining solutions for automotive and general industry customers. As a result of this expansion, Henrob will add up to 50 employees in the areas of rivet production and rivet setter upset die production, company officials said.

"With Ford utilizing our solutions for the new aluminum body F-150 in addition to many other customers' programs, we needed to increase capacity to keep up with demand," said Mark Ayres, General Manager, Henrob Group. "Our new building will allow us to accomplish this and also provide us with room for growth."

“Prior to starting production in the new building, the rivet production capacity of the existing facility is three billion rivets per year. With existing business and new customer programs that are starting up now, the expansion was necessary to keep up with demand,” a spokesperson said.
