Kors Engineering expands, diversifies in Waterford

Kors Engineering is experiencing a good bit of growth in Waterford thanks to a new partnership with Plex Systems and diversification of its client base.

The 35-year-old business specializes on systems integration and automation for manufacturers and other industrial facilities. It focused more on facilities before this last year when it started to focus more on integrating manufacturing equipment to the SAAS-based ERP system employed by Auburn Hills-based Plex Systems.

“It has provided new growth opportunities,” says Tony Kaczmarek, president of Kors Engineering.

That has prompted Kors Engineering to ramp up its operations and cross-train its employees to handle the increased workload. The firm is now looking at adding a couple of controls engineers to its staff of 12 people. It’s also looking to add an intern or two in 2013.

Kaczmarek sees his company continuing to grow the manufacturing-integration-side of the business in 2013. It is looking at expanding further into Plex Systems’ diverse customer base, such as adding food manufacturers.

“We’re adapting into that product side,” Kaczmarek says.
