Red Point Engineering made the move from Silicon Valley to Metro Detroit last year to take advantage of the region’s talent pool and depth of resources in the automotive sector.
The nearly 10-year-old company specializes in advanced electric vehicle technologies and electric drivetrain development and integration. It choose to move to Auburn Hills because of the municipality’s proximity to automotive suppliers and I-75.
“It (the city of Auburn Hills) has been very friendly and helpful to us so we can get started,” says Monica Kedzierski, business development director of Red Point Engineering.
Kedzierski declined to publicly disclose the size of Red Point Engineering’s workforce because of competition concerns, but did note that it has been growing since landing in Metro Detroit. It is constantly on the lookout for engineers in the software, electrical and powertrain fields.
“We’re going to need to expand,” Kedzierski says. “We will need a larger building to fulfill our customer requirements and scale the business.”
