About Us

In 2012, Detroit Manufacturing Systems brought a new large-scale manufacturing facility to the city for the first time in decades and is helping to revitalize the city and the state of Michigan through significant job creation.


Our 1,200 salaried and hourly team members use state-of-the-art technology to manufacture and assemble injection-molded components such as cockpits for global brands with an unparalleled commitment to quality and efficiency.


Last year, our team members built more than 1 million parts. 

In October 2017, we opened a new facility in Toledo, Ohio, and created 200 jobs.


By achieving best-in-class performance and profitability, DMS contributes to the health and sustainability of its team members, partners, suppliers and the community -- and we’re working to create opportunity and prosperity for future generations.




It’s about vision, responsibility and the general welfare

of our people at DMS.

for the next 150 years.

Our diverse and talented team of component manufacturing experts

is dedicated to quality and innovation, and committed to community

revitalization in Detroit and Toledo.
