DETROIT -- Auto supplier Tenneco Inc. plans to build a $23 million sales center in Northville Township, about 30 miles west of Detroit.
The Lake Forest, Ill.-based company said in a statement Thursday that the 100,000-square-foot location will be home to the company's Clear Air and Ride Control North American sales operations and other support function. The company plans to add about 100 jobs there over three to five years.
The project has been awarded a $750,000 performance-based grant from the Michigan Economic Development Corp., the state's development arm said in a news release.
The company plans to break ground next month and open the center late next year. It will be located at 15701 Technology Drive near Five Mile and Beck roads.
Tenneco's Michigan presence has grown. The company said it has more than doubled employment at its Grass Lake engineering and technical center over the past decade, alongside employment growth at its Ride Performance North American headquarters in Monroe.
Tenneco, which makes a wide variety of emission control systems, shock absorbers and suspension products, has about 31,000 employees worldwide. The company ranks No. 31 on the Automotive News list of the top 100 global suppliers with worldwide sales to automakers of $7.36 billion in 2016.
