SME, the 86-year-old nonprofit manufacturing association and publisher of Manufacturing Engineering and Smart Manufacturing, announced the relocation of its world headquarters from Dearborn, MI to Southfield, MI. Today, May 14, marks the first day of operations in the new offices located in the Southfield Town Center. The new headquarters occupies 39,000 square feet on the 19th and 20th floors of the 1000 Tower. In addition to the new headquarters, SME has offices in Cleveland and Markham, Ontario.
Founded in 1932, SME’s first offices were in Detroit before moving to Dearborn in 1965.
The offices are designed to increase collaboration among employees, with a focus on activity-based work. Large windows around the perimeter flood the open office with natural light and sweeping views that include Southfield’s Civic Center Park and downtown Detroit’s skyline in the distance. Employees will have access to the Southfield Town Center’s amenities and recreational opportunities at the nearby park.
Details about a grand opening for members, partners and customers to tour the new offices will be shared soon.
