Sunlogics announces contract with GM Ventures, move to Rochester Hills

Posted on July 28, 2011

Sunlogics Inc., a manufacturer of solar-powered electric charging stations, announced this morning it is moving its global headquarters and manufacturing facility to Rochester Hills. Previously, the company was located in Modesto, Calif.

The company expects its relocation and a new contract with General Motors Ventures to build charging stations at 3,000 Chevrolet dealerships in North America to create 200 jobs at its new facility at 2910 Waterview Dr., Rochester Hills — a building that was once owned by Dana Corp.

Sunlogics was selected by General Motors Ventures to provide solar-powered electric charging stations for the Chevrolet Volt at 3,000 Chevrolet dealerships in North America. Sunlogics is opening its operation in a 140,000-square-foot building that was once owned by the Dana Corp.

GM Ventures also announced this morning that it had made an equity investment of $7.5 million in Sunlogics. The energy company will use some of the funding to set up the Rochester Hills headquarters.
