Automobile parts Manufacturing companies
Detroit Manufacturing Systems has confirmed it will build an auto parts factory at the Overland Industrial Park in North Toledo.
Officials with the company haven’t said when the plant will open or how many jobs likely will be created, though some of those questions may be answered at a groundbreaking ceremony set for today.

Detroit Manufacturing was formed in 2012 in a joint venture between Detroit-based Rush Group and Faurecia North America. The company, which makes interior parts, has about 1, 000 employees at its Detroit factory.
Based on previous statements from developers at Overland, it’s not expected that the Toledo plant will have a work force anywhere near that large, though officials with Detroit Manufacturing said Tuesday the factory will create “hundreds of jobs.”
Stephanie Kuhlman, the senior development agent with site developer NAI Harmon Group, told The Blade last week the Overland Industrial Park should eventually be home to 600 to 700 jobs.
Dana Inc., which signed on in May to be the new industrial park’s first tenant, has committed to hiring at least 300 workers for a factory that will supply axles to Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ Toledo Assembly Complex. It isn’t clear if Detroit Manufacturing has a contract with FCA, though that site has been targeted toward Jeep suppliers.
Both Dana and Detroit Manufacturing are receiving financing from Lucas County Builds, a new job creation and investment fund created by the Lucas County Commissioners, the Northwest Ohio Building Trades, the Carpenter’s Council, the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority, and the Regional Growth Partnership.
