FEV has hired about 100 people over the last year, expanding its Auburn Hills staff to almost 400 people.
FEV specializes in powertrain and vehicle engineering in the global transportation industry. The engineering services it offers a range of services, from design to prototyping to development to integration for internal combustion gasoline-, diesel-, and alternative-fueled powertrains. Most of its new hires have been in engineering, design and testing. The company has anywhere from 50-70 job postings this month.
"I expect to grow between 15-30 percent over the next 2-3 years," says Tim Meyer, senior technical recruiter with FEV
He adds the marketplace has become more favorable toward propulsion systems, increasing the demand for the services provided FEV. It is why FEV recently expanded its current building, which will allow it to accommodate its expected future growth.
"There is a lot of space put aside for this growth," Meyer says.
