Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division has broken ground on the construction of a new expansion in Novi, Michigan. Slated for completion in Fall 2019, the 88,000-square-foot building will house a technology showroom, a technical training center and a 15,000-square-foot laboratory and calibration hub. The two-story office area will have glass walls and windows presenting an exceptional view of the nearly 11,000-square-foot showroom and demonstration area from both levels.

Expanding Hexagon’s presence in the Midwest, the Center of Excellence is expected to serve as a cornerstone to support advanced manufacturing in the region. Hexagon will consolidate all of its Manufacturing Intelligence businesses in the greater Detroit area into a central location, which includes MSC Software, Production Software (formerly Vero Software), Q-DAS and its metrology solutions portfolio. Employees from the AutonomouStuff and Safety Critical brands of Hexagon’s Positioning Intelligence division will also work from the new site. Read More.
