DETROIT, MI (metromode)–The transformation of Acument over the past few years typifies what Detroit auto suppliers experienced: loss of work and shrinking operations. Today, however, Acument is a promising sign of things to come.
Acument, a Platinum Equity portfolio company, recently struck a deal with the Michigan Economic Development Corp to expand its Sterling Heights, Holly, and Fenton plants. It expects to hire 50 people in Metro Detroit this year, expanding its workforce to 500 personnel by 2012 and 600 by 2014.
