Gasket maker purchases plant in Hillsdale

HILLSDALE - City officials said Foamade Industries of Auburn Hills, Mich., has purchased the former Bose plant at the Hillsdale Industrial Park. After renovating the building, Foamade will open its plant early next year with 30 employees and eventually expand to 135 employees, City Manager Tim Vagle said.

Foamade, which makes gaskets, filters, and other foam products for vehicles and other equipment, has a smaller plant, with 25 employees, at the industrial park.

The company had considered moving to Litchfield, Mich., but Mr. Vagle said company officials chose Hillsdale because the Bose plant could be retrofitted easily and they liked the idea of having two plants close together.
