We are delighted to have a presence in Michigan, home of the automotive industry.”

As Lenze continues to expand their business operations in the automotive industry, John Slayton, manager, Automotive Business Development group for Lenze, will manage the new location. Slayton is responsible for strategic development of automotive end-user and OEM customers.
