FARMINGTON HILLS — The Farmington Hills vehicle telematics producer Danlaw Inc. Friday reported doubling its staff since 2011 and sevenfold growth over five years.
“Our growth and job creation has continued to progress at a rapid pace,” said Danlaw president and COO Tom Rzeznik of the company’s connected vehicle and automotive electronics business.
Rzeznik cites Danlaw’s product line expansions in telematics, vehicle electronics and services, global presence and aggressive marketing efforts as key to its continued growth.
Beyond these key growth drivers, Rzeznik notes that there are four critical factors for Danlaw’s success: 30 years of continuous operation in the automotive electronics industry, the uniqueness of Danlaw’s products and services, solid partnerships with suppliers and contract manufacturers, and most importantly – the Danlaw team.
“We believe in investing in Michigan, which means we continue to re-invest in our proprietary technology, our employees and partners,” he says. “Danlaw’s aftermarket telematics solutions and OEM electronics are engineered and tested to the most stringent of automotive OEM standards, and leverage technology that Danlaw has perfected for over 30 years, ensuring success for our clients. We operate on the belief that company growth and client satisfaction are based on having first class product development, sales and support teams, coupled with solid and enduring partnership relationships with our suppliers and contract manufacturers.”
Danlaw now employs over 300 people worldwide, and the forecast calls for expanded growth as the company enters new markets and continues to focus its efforts on its longstanding relationships with its existing clients. In addition to creating new jobs within the company, Danlaw has been credited with adding another 20 jobs at its Michigan contract manufacturing partners in the last year.
“We realized the need to bring manufacturing back to Michigan for a number of business and technical reasons, but what we are really proud of is doing our part as responsible Michigan citizens and supporting our local economy by bringing good, high-paying, high-tech, high-volume electronics manufacturing jobs back to Michigan,” says Rzeznik.
Danlaw’s founder and CEO, Raju Dandu formed Danlaw with a key principle of “family” which includes both Danlaw employees and partners.
“We truly are one big family, who care deeply about one another and who take pride in the efforts that we put toward our company, community, products and services, and our clients and partners,” Dandu said. “As we approach our 30th anniversary, I am reminded of the effect that our family approach has had on all aspects of our business growth and success.”
With more growth forecasted, Danlaw maintains its hiring initiative for identifying top notch hardware and software engineers, sales and marketing resources, and industry innovators to carry the company and Michigan forward for another 30 years.
