In addition to the sensor and related offerings of Kistler Instrument Corp., the tech center will support the Kistler KT North America crash test portfolio of onboard, off-board, and in-dummy data-acquisition systems and software; Corrsys-Datron vehicle dynamics measurement technologies; and Kistler joining systems for manufacturing assembly operations. Kistler employees operating from Michigan facilities in Farmington Hills, Flint, and Novi have been moved to the new location.
