PLYMOUTH, Mich.—Associated Spring (AS), a business of Barnes Group Inc. (www.BGInc.com) and a provider of engineered precision springs and stampings, has announced the opening of its new Innovation and Technology Center (AS ITC) in Plymouth, Michigan. The new AS ITC will house Associated Spring’s global headquarters, metallurgical lab, and product/process and research and development (R&D) areas. It will also serve as a production center for high performance/racing, drag racing, and circle track racing springs, as well as other aftermarket applications, according to a press release from Associated Spring (www.asbg.com).
The AS ITC will also be a hub of new product and process development (NPD), spring training events, technology benchmarking, and other customer- and market- focused initiatives. The new Plymouth AS ITC location enables Associated Spring’s engineering and sales teams to be closer to many of its local customers that are launching strategic platforms, such as 8-, 9-, and 10-speed automotive automatic transmissions that benefit from the precision and value added engineering that AS provides to its customers, according to the release.
In partnership with its domestic and global divisions, the AS ITC will also work to support industrial customers with key technological advances, serving markets such as transportation, aerospace/defense, construction/mining, diesel powertrain, race/performance, energy, medical, HVAC/compressor, consumer products, telecommunications/electronics, and general industrial. In addition to the AS ITC, Associated Spring operates seven other global manufacturing and engineering divisions: four in the U.S. (Bristol, Conn.; Corry, Pa.; Milwaukee, Wis.; and Syracuse, N.Y.), one in Mexico, one in Brazil, and one in Singapore.
