Hatzel & Buehler was selected as the electrical contractor for the new Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) Test Track at the Sterling Heights Assembly Plant, in Sterling Heights, Michigan. Fiat Chrysler is investing over $1 Billion into the assembly plant. This plant will test the functionality of the new Dodge Ram trucks before they are sent to market. Hatzel & Buehler’s overall scope of work includes lighting, power distribution, fire alarm, gas detection and heat tracing.
Hatzel & Buehler opened their local Michigan office in 1922 in an effort to provide electrical services to the emerging automotive industry. The local office quickly established relationships with the Ford Motor Company, General Motors Corporation and the Chrysler Corporation, with large scale project work quickly following and continuing throughout the mid 1900’s.
