SOUTHFIELD, Mich. — Denso International America Inc. plans to invest $75 million by 2021 to expand its North American headquarters in suburban Detroit.
The U.S. subsidiary of Japan's Denso Corp. will create 120 new jobs as part of the project, the supplier said. The expansion will include new testing facilities and equipment at the Southfield office to advance automotive safety, cybersecurity and autonomous vehicles components.
Denso also plans to invest $500,000 to expand its Dublin, Ohio, operations by 5,000 square feet to support R&D in powertrain components and infotainment systems. That project will create 13 jobs, the company said.
"This is the first in a line of investments to create the future of mobility by bringing in top talent and fostering our culture of innovation," Kenichiro Ito, CEO of Denso International America, said.
