1) Avancez LLC – General Motors Co. Supplier
General Motors Co. supplier Avancez LLC inked a deal to occupy 400,000 square feet of space at Tri-County Commerce Center 3. This will bring 240 new jobs to the area. Regarding this new tenant deal, Kevin Hegg, a VP of Ashley Capital, said “Honestly, we’re running out of space. It’s indicative of how incredibly hot of a market it is.”
Investment for Avancez’s plant will be around $50 million total. The Michigan Department of Transportation announced that it would provide $1.4 million in road improvements and accessibility near the plant in addition to the nearly $1 million being contributed by Avancez.
Avancez signed a 10-year lease at the Michigan industrial complex immediately following the 10-year contract with GM to produce assembled modules for Factory Zero. Avancez specializes in “just in time” manufacturing, suspension modules, sequencing, as well as tire and wheel assembly.

Wisconsin-based Mayville Engineering Co is also going to be a tenant in Tri-County Commerce Center 3. It recently announced the signing of a 10-year lease for 450,000 square feet of industrial space. Mayville Engineering Co plans to invest around $45 million and will hire 390 employees at the Hazel Park plant.
Mayville Engineering’s plant at Tri-County Commerce Center is expected to serve as a space for welding, tube bending, laser cutting, painting and electrocoating operations. Mayville provides the following services: prototyping and tooling, fabrication, coating, assembly and aftermarket components for commercial vehicles, construction, powersports, agriculture, and military customers.
“After reviewing many alternative [industrial real estate] sites and states, we selected Hazel park… due to the availability of a highly skilled manufacturing workforce in the area to support existing demand and potential future market growth opportunities,” said Mayville COO Rand Stille.
