L&L Products, Inc., a family-owned business-to-business company, announces the grand opening of its expanded production facilities in the Village of Romeo to accommodate automotive growth and diversification. A ribbon cutting ceremony occurred today and was attended by L&L shareholders, the L&L executive team, employees, and special guests from the local community.
The facility has grown from 322,974 SF to 464,528 SF, completing the four-phase site plan that was established when L&L purchased the 26-acre site in 1993. The completed facility now features a main aisle that stretches for nearly a quarter mile (1194 ft [364m]), connecting the warehouse to manufacturing areas for greater flexibility.
The additional warehouse space was designed to maximize manufacturing, improve material flow, and increase flexibility for future growth in both manufacturing and warehousing.
"This expansion will allow us to continue to delight and grow with our customer partners and invest in our future with new exciting products," said John Babi, Director of Operations at L&L Products Romeo. “Our shareholders believe in the L&L team, the community supports us, and our employees make it happen daily. Without this, the expansion would not be possible.”
Supported by a $450,000 Michigan Business Development Program performance-based grant, the project brings an approximate $25 million capital investment to the region and will help ensure the company’s continued growth in Michigan with approximately 65 new jobs to be associated with the expansion.
L&L Products was founded in Almont, Michigan, in 1958 and has production facilities around the world. The company currently employs approximately 550 Michiganders. For information on careers with L&L, visit https://www.llproducts.com/career/.
