FANUC America Expands Michigan Campus Size

FANUC America — a supplier of CNCsrobotics and Robomachines — is nearly doubing the size of its West Campus which will push its operational space in Oakland County, Michigan, to nearly two million square feet. The company says the construction includes a 655,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility to house manufacturing, engineering and R&D projects.

This investment in Michigan’s growing manufacturing area includes the purchase of 67 acres of land as well as the site of the former Thomas M. Cooley Law School Campus, which will provide space for future growth in the education of the next generation of robotics and automation workers. Including the existing building, FANUC will add a total of 788,000 square feet of additional operational floor space.

“We’re excited to announce the addition of the new West Campus and our ability to continue to expand in Oakland County, Michigan,” says Mike Cicco, FANUC America’s president and CEO. “This investment in the future of U.S. manufacturing will help FANUC America meet the tremendous demand for automation solutions.”

In October 2019, FANUC America opened the North Campus, a 461,000-square-foot facility built by General Development Co., which is also constructing the new West Campus.

The North Campus is located in Auburn Hills, Michigan, and is walking distance from FANUC America’s headquarters in Rochester Hills, Michigan. It is said the addition continues to be crucial in growing the company’s engineering, R&D, manufacturing and warehousing capabilities, and has supported record-breaking orders and deliveries in a short period of time.

“Interest in robotics and automation remains strong with new demand coming from a variety of industries,” Cicco says. “EV, warehousing and logistics, as well as food and beverage are all looking to automation to increase production and solve the growing labor shortage.”
