TROY, Mich., 20 October 2021 / PRNewswire / – With attention to detail and preservation, KIRCO MANIX announced today that it has completed the renovation and expansion of Webasto’s new Americas headquarters in its existing building located at 2500 Executive Hills Boulevard in Auburn Hills, Michigan.

“Webasto chose our company for this project, not only because of the scale of the renovations, but also because of our personal history,” said Douglas W. Manix, president of KIRCO MANIX. “The existing building was originally constructed by Campbell/ Manix in 1995. “

The first phase of the expansion of the world’s leading supplier of roofing systems for automotive OEMs in the mobility sector began in May 2019 with the demolition of the interior of the existing 109,000 square foot building and was completed in July 2019.

In phase two, KIRCO MANIX inaugurated a 40,000 square foot addition to October 2019, which included the addition of a test lab, office space and dining room. Simultaneously, phase three began in February 2020 with interior renovations.

According to Manix, this is an interesting architectural project for KIRCO MANIX to have been part of. The building has a unique architectural style, not typical for an office building in the metro Detroit Region. It is inspired by an anthropology museum in Veracruz, Mexico.

Webasto is strongly committed to preserving original features and design intent, therefore KIRCO MANIX worked carefully to match styles and building elements throughout the new addition. For example, replacing and upgrading the building’s original skylights and adapting the existing 3,000 perforated windows from the original design carried over to the new addition.

With an investment of $ 40 million, the expansion will support Webasto’s planned engineering and testing requirements, as well as consolidate its existing staff from locations in Rochester Hills, Troy and Plymouth, Michigan.
