Hexagon, a global leader in software and autonomous solutions is expanding in Novi, adding 50 high-wage, high-tech jobs
Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division, founded in 1833 as Brown and Sharpe, provides solutions that utilize data from design and engineering, production and metrology to make manufacturing smarter.
Headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden, Hexagon has five locations in Michigan, 25 in the U.S., and hundreds across the globe. The company provides digital solutions that create autonomous connected ecosystems, enabling productivity and quality improvements across manufacturing, infrastructure, safety, and mobility applications.
Hexagon has acquired more than 10 companies over the past two years and continues to increase its technology capabilities and product offerings, and plans to establish a new facility in the City of Novi that will house training space and a technology showcase that exemplifies the company’s engineering capabilities. The building will house 177 existing employees consolidated from offices in Southfield, Troy, Ann Arbor, Rochester Hills and Wixom, and will also allow room for additional employees. The project is expected to generate a total private investment of $19.5 million and create 50 high-wage, high-tech jobs, resulting in a $250,000 Michigan Business Development Program performance-based grant.
Michigan was chosen over competing sites in multiple locations. The Michigan expansion supports the state’s leadership in advanced manufacturing and Industry 4.0 while also creating jobs in an industry that is expected to experience significant growth in the future. The City of Novi has offered to assist the company with recruitment efforts. For information on careers with Hexagon, visit hexagon.com/about/careers.
