Ross Controls, which recently celebrated its 100-year anniversary, officially opened its new global headquarters on August 26, 2021. The event was attended by all employees in the area along with a number of guests including Ferndale Mayor Melanie Piana.
The new headquarters is also home to Ross Decco, a coil and solenoid manufacturer Ross acquired in 2011, and to Automatic Valve, the industrial division acquired in 2017, with all three companies originating from the Metro Detroit area. This new location brings together the formerly separate administrative, manufacturing, engineering, research & development, marketing, and customer support operations, and is expected to increase internal efficiencies to further improve customer responsiveness.
The facility has an urban feel in both the manufacturing and the office space while offering several areas dedicated for collaboration that will prove helpful for planned or impromptu meetings. Ross designs and manufactures pneumatic and hydraulic valves and control systems, remote alternative lockout systems, and is universally recognized as a global leader in fluid power safety solutions and poppet valve technology.
