LLC, to create a new holding company. All three companies were previously majority-owned by affiliates of American Securities, with Grede being acquired in June 2014. Following the IPO, affiliates of American Securities will hold a significant ownership position in MPG and its professionals continue to serve on the MPG’s Board of Directors. Grede Holdings LLC, an MPG, Inc. company, was


formed in 2010 through the combination of assets of the former Grede Foundries, Inc., Blackhawk Foundry (USA), and Citation Corporation. With estimated annual revenues exceeding $1 billion, the Grede legacy dates to 1920 when William J. Grede founded Grede Foundries, Inc. with an iron foundry in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. With headquarters in Southfield, Michigan, the company specializes in high quality ductile, gray and specialty iron castings, includ- ing lost foam and high silicon molybdenum applications. Grede Holdings LLC has 4,600 employees and operates 14 foundries and three machining operations in North America serving the transportation and industrial markets globally. 


三家公司之前都由美国证券公司的子公司控股,格瑞德 公司于2014年6月被收购。在此处IPO之后,美国证券 的子公司将持有麦特达因控股集团较多的股份,其专业 人员将继续担任麦特达因集团董事会成员。 格瑞德控股公司隶属于麦特达因控股集团,成立 于2010年,由原先的格瑞德铸造厂、黑鹰铸造厂( 美国)和萨坦逊集团合资成立。格瑞德公司的年收 入预计将超过10亿美元,公司的历史可追溯到1920 年,William J. Grede建立了格瑞德铸造公司,并在威 斯康辛州的沃瓦托萨修建了铸铁厂。公司总部位于密歇 根州南菲尔德,专业生产高质量的球墨铸铁、灰铸铁和 特种铸铁产品,包括消失模和高硅钼合金生产工艺。格 瑞德控股公司在北美地区拥有14个铸造厂,3个机加工 中心和4600名员工,为全球交通运输和工业行业提供 优质服务。 


ALMMII Opens Detroit Innovation Acceleration Center ALMMII成立底特律创新加速中心


Te American Lightweight Materials Manufacturing


Innovation Institute (ALMMII), Detroit, has cut the ribbon to officially open its new innovation acceleration center. Te 100,000 sq.-ft. facility in Detroit is part of a national net- work of research institutions and industrial companies geared toward advancing America’s leadership in manufacturing technology. Te center’s focus is to accelerate the transfer of new manufacturing technology from the research lab to the production floor for products using lightweight metals including aluminum, magnesium, titanium and advanced high-strength steel alloys. An equally important mission of the center is to facilitate the training of the workers who will be using these new processes in factories and maintenance facilitates around the country. ALMMII is funded by the U.S. Naval Research Labora-


tory, with support from industry partners and academic research institutions including the American Foundry Society. It will be led by industry with input from the government. Te lead partners in founding ALMMII are the University of Michigan, Ohio State University and EWI, an independent research and development organization based in Columbus, Ohio. ALM- MII has established its headquarters in Detroit because it is the epicenter of the largest concentration of automotive research and development centers in the world. Te location also places the center along I-75, an industrial corridor that connects states in which nearly half of America’s manufacturing workforce is located. ALMMII will directly serve a five-state region, although its work is national in scope. Reducing the weight of materials used in vehicles is im-


perative to save energy costs. ALMMII will connect private companies to laboratories to develop the specific tools and skills to make research breakthroughs practical for produc- tion of parts primarily for vehicles, airplanes and other forms of transportation. 


位于底特律的美国轻质材料生产创新研究院 (ALMMII)举办了剪彩仪式,庆祝创新加速中心正 式成立。该中心是美国国家研究机构和企业网络的 组成部分,旨在提高美国在制造业技术领域的领先 地位。该中心的重点是加速制造业新技术的成果转 化,生产铝合金、镁合金、钛合金和先进高强钢合 金的轻质产品。另一个重点是加强对工厂里使用这 些新工艺的工人进行技术培训。


ALMMII由美国海军研究实验室赞助,得到了包 括美国铸造协会等行业组织和科研机构的支持。主 要的合作伙伴有密歇根大学、俄亥俄州立大学以及 位于哥伦比亚的独立研发机构EWI。ALMMII的总部 位于底特律,因为这里是全世界汽车研发中心的中 心。而且,总部的中心位于I-75(美国75号州际公 路),这里是连接近一半美国制造业劳动力的工业 走廊。ALMMII的各种范围涵盖全国,但它将直接服 务于该地区的五个州。


汽车材料的重量减轻是降低能耗的至关重要的方 面。ALMMII将联合私营企业与实验室,研发专业的 设备和技术,旨在汽车、飞机和其它交通工具的部 件生产方面取得突破性成果。 
