Rex Materials moves to new, state-of-the-art R&D facility in Howell
After 36 years at the Meadowbrook Farms location on Grand River Avenue in Fowlerville, Rex Materials moved its corporate headquarters and research facility to a new, modern facility at 1600 Brewer Road in Howell. The move marks the end of a 10-month construction project, resulting in the full relocation of staff to the new office space on April 27.
Rex Materials is a manufacturer of specialty refractory materials with customers in 35 countries. Applications range from insulation for residential furnaces, pool heaters, kilns, and small industrial furnaces to heaters for plastic injection molding and blow molding equipment. Rex Materials also supplies materials for transporting molten aluminum in primary aluminum plants worldwide.
“This new location will result in a significant upgrade of our research and design facilities” said CEO David Rex. “We have designed the building specifically to support the collaborative design process between our engineering team, our customers and our production facilities, as well as our upgraded computer and communication technologies.”
“The $3-million investment is a commitment to the future of Rex Materials in Livingston County and to our employee base,” Rex said. “We wanted to create a space everyone could enjoy while also making it easier for teams to collaborate. The open floor plan and the large window should create a wonderful space to work.”
