Magna opens a new electronics manufacturing facility in Grand Blanc Township, Michigan. The facility consolidates three nearby locations into a single facility that combines 21st-century manufacturing with people-first workplace design and functionality.

By opening the 230,000-square-foot facility with an investment of nearly $50 million, Magna solidifies its presence in Grand Blanc Township and is positioned to continue its leadership in vision-based driver assistance systems. The new facility allows Magna to accelerate large-scale deployment of future technologies such as advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), advanced robotics and micro-LED lighting.

Magna now combines cameras with other sensors such as RADAR and LiDAR to develop the advanced driver assistance systems that make up the building blocks of autonomy. With Magna’s systems, drivers can activate the adaptive cruise control to maintain a safe following distance and speed, use lane-keeping assist to center the vehicle, and check blind spots to monitor adjacent travel lanes.
