On Tuesday, October 22, 2019, FANUC America had the great pleasure of hosting a Grand Opening of our new 461,000 square-foot facility in Auburn Hills, Michigan。 Constructed and in full operation just one year after breaking ground, the new facility houses several departments including engineering, product development, manufacturing and warehousing。  Now, to keep pace with the growing demand for robots and automation, FANUC occupies over one million square feet of building space in Oakland County, Michigan。

In the morning, FANUC hosted customers, local officials, educators, suppliers, and the media to an official program, ribbon cutting ceremony and facility tour. Special guests included Michigan’s Governor Gretchen Whitmer, Auburn Hills Mayor Kevin McDaniel, and Rochester Hills Mayor Bryan Barnett. At the ribbon-cutting ceremony, Mr. Yamaguchi presented FANUC America with a special gift - A beautiful portrait of Mt. Fuji, which will be on permanent display at the new North Campus facility. Additionally, Governor Whitmer presented FANUC America with a commemorative plaque from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC), celebrating the MEDC's support of FANUC America's new facility and economic contributions to the state of Michigan and the local area.

After commemorative speeches and the ribbon-cutting ceremony, automation tours were given that included over 20 robot demonstrations, from its smallest M-1iA delta robot, to the mighty M-2000iA, the world’s strongest robot able to lift 2.3 tons. There were also a variety of hands-on cobot demonstrations that highlight easy setup and programming. Additional demonstrations included real-world robotic solutions for assembly, material handling, packaging, palletizing, painting and welding. Most of the solutions include FANUC intelligence like integrated iRVision that gives the robots a sense of sight.
