MACOMB TOWNSHIP — At the State of the County address earlier this month, Tooling Technology Group, or TTG, was mentioned as one of several companies that invested in Macomb County in 2018.

Earlier this year, TTG expanded its Majestic Industries facility at 15378 Hallmark Court in Macomb Township at a cost of $19.9 million.   

TTG has two facilities in Macomb Township – Majestic Industries and its headquarters at 51223 Quadrate Drive. Both are located near 23 Mile and Hayes roads.

TTG builds custom tooling for various industries including thermoforming compression, blow mold, die cast, stamping and secondary equipment.

“We continue to experience some of the largest and most technologically advanced investments in the entire state,” Macomb County Executive Mark Hackel said. “The most apparent is in our automotive sector. Some of most recent investments include Tooling Technology Group in Macomb Township with a $19 million investment.”

TTG is one of the largest tooling providers in the country with over 650 employees and 12 facilities across four states. Its Michigan locations include Macomb Township, Temperance, Fenton and Grand Rapids.

Majestic Industries, a TTG Company, deals with progressive dies that service automotive and consumer industries. TTG acquired Majestic Industries in 2015.

The opening of its corporate headquarters brings with it a plan to add 100 new jobs over the next five years at its Michigan locations.

The investment includes a 70,000-square-foot manufacturing plant that will also become its corporate headquarters along with a new 2,750-ton Eagle press at Majestic with a 280-inch platen. This is expected to generate at least 35 jobs in Macomb Township.

“The opening of TTG’s world headquarters will better enable the execution of the company’s strategic growth plans, and also allow TTG to be closer to some of its key automotive customers,” the release states.

Construction of the press pit began in May. It is now fully operational.

The new equipment will expand Majestic’s capabilities into the transfer die business, providing die design, construction, try-out and production of more and larger dies with more complex features.

“This is an exciting addition as there are very few die shops with a press this large,” Tony Seger, Tooling Tech Group founder and chairman, said. “This investment enhances our ability to serve our customers as a comprehensive resource regardless of their stamping process while creating entirely new revenue opportunities for this company.”

The new Eagle press has a bed size of 280 inches by 108 inches and a 36-inch stroke size. It can handle coils of aluminum or steel in widths up to 72 inches, coil weight of 50,000 pounds and material, depending upon width and tensile strength.
