Prefix Corporation, a Michigan-based organization providing design and engineering services, concept vehicle creation, prototypes, low volume paint and assembly programs and contract manufacturing, has entered into an agreement to buy a 25-acre Rochester Hills, Michigan complex from EEI Global, the company announced. As part of the agreement, EEI Global will relocate to an existing facility in Rochester Hills currently occupied by Prefix.
“We’ve been extremely fortunate during the past few years in capturing additional market share, advancing into new industries, and investing heavily in emerging technologies,” explained Prefix president, Eric Zeile. “The growth of our business made timing perfect for acquiring the EEI campus facility.”
The purchase will allow Prefix to combine all three of its current Rochester Hills locations into one facility, greatly improving operational efficiencies, allowing for future expansion and providing the space needed to service the growing list of customers and markets they serve, the company said. The current Prefix 3500 Joslyn Road facility in Auburn Hills will remain part of the organization.
Discussions on this purchase have been underway for most of the past year, allowing both organizations to work together on a multi-phase plan for moving each business and keep disruptions to day-to-day operations to a minimum, company representatives added.
