EJOT Fastening Systems USA is the US operations of EJOT GmbH, the 90+ year old worldwide innovator and manufacturer of automotive, industrial, and building fasteners. EJOT’s products are known worldwide and include brands such as Delta PT®, PT®, Altracs Plus®, SHEETtracs®, EasyBoss®, VarioBoss®, FDS®, JT3® and many others. The Grand Opening also served as the introduction of EJOT’s newest innovation, EJOWELD®. EJOWELD® is a complete fastening solution for joining thin aluminum sheet to ultrahigh strength steel, a capability in high demand by today’s automotive OEMS as they seek new ways to make their vehicles lighter. The 8000+ square foot Technical Center adds to EJOT’s footprint in the US, joining its headquarters in Kenosha, Wisconsin. The Wixom Technical Center will house one of America’s best equipped fastener application labs, a training center, and the hub of EJOT’s automotive and industrial sales and marketing resources. The Kenosha HQs will continue to support the US with EJOT’s building fastener lines, including JT3, other drill screws, and EJOT’s fasteners for the solar industry. The Grand Opening was attended by over two hundred guests, including representatives from the State of Michigan’s Governor’s Office, Oakland County, the City of Wixom, many of EJOTs customers, suppliers, partner companies and many EJOT VIPs. The Grand Opening began with a welcoming address from Stephan Weitzel, Vice President of Licensing and New Business Development, and Christian Kocherscheidt, CEO. A short keynote address was given by Dr. Klaus Koglin, retired Head of Technology for Audi. Following the addresses, the group moved to a ribbon cutting ceremony where owners Hans and Gisela Kocherscheidt snipped the ribbon, officially opening the Technical Center for business. The rest of the afternoon gave guests the chance to see product demonstrations in the new labs and enjoy a traditional German Oktoberfest. BUSINESS FOCUS ARTICLE EJOT FASTENERING SYSTEMS USA
