WARREN (WWJ) — The auto and manufacturing staffing and services provider MSX International said Wednesday it would move 15 headquarters staffers to about 5,000 square feet of the One Detroit Center building in downtown Detroit.

The company said the move supports its recent growth and will allow it to better serve and expand its robust client base.

Said Fred Minturn, president and CEO of MSXI: “Our company is passionately committed to supporting community development, and having an office at One Detroit Center allows MSXI to positively contribute to the dynamic transformation of Detroit, while meeting our clients’ growing needs.”

MSXI will maintain its current space in Warren, where about 300 employees work. The MSXI executive team plans to move to the new location during the fourth quarter of 2013.

MSXI has expanded its presence throughout the world since 2010 with new offices in China, India, Hungary, South Africa and the Czech Republic to support revenue growth of 60 percent, reflecting new business with virtually all of the global automotive manufacturers and important new customers in a variety of industries.

In addition to its expansion in Michigan, the company also has opened a new facility in Bangkok, Thailand, to further support its customers in Asia. Xavier Vandame, managing director of Asia-Pacific operations, will lead the MSXI Thailand team. The new location in Thailand further extends the company’s strong global breadth and positions it for future growth around the world.

MSX has two business units — staffing and contract labor management in the automotive, consumer packaged goods and industrial markets, and Retail Network Solutions, which works with auto dealer networks to optimize service, sales and employee training. MSXI also provides warranty fulfillment services in the auto industry.
