Oliver Racing Parts, a manufacturer of connecting rods for motorsports applications, is moving its operations and manufacturing to a more modern 70,000-square-foot facility in Charlevoix, Mich.
The move will give Oliver an opportunity to upgrade its manufacturing and packaging equipment in a new facility, which will enable the company to continue expanding its line of high-performance products, according to a press release.
“The opportunity to move Oliver Racing Parts into a more modern facility allows us to upgrade the company and our products in multiple ways, while staying in Michigan,” said Joseph A. Moch, president and CEO of Oliver Racing Parts. “The move to a modern facility in a greener, outdoors-friendly environment will improve the quality of life for our employees and hopefully encourage them to grow with our company.”
The relocation will take place in three phases and is expected to be complete by the first week of October, the company said.
“The proximity to other automotive companies was a factor (in selecting Charlevoix),” Moch said. “As a native Michigander, I wanted to locate our company in an area with all the great things we have here: natural beauty of the Great Lakes region and outstanding quality of life for our employees. This is a great area to not only grow a family, but a company, too.”
Oliver Racing Parts will now be located at 5339 N. M-66 North in Charlevoix. Effective Oct.1, the company’s new telephone number will be 231-237-4515.
