The roots of Mayco International/Venture Global date back to 1974 with the founding of Venture Industries, a designer and manufacturer of molded parts for automotive interiors, exteriors and composites. In its first decade, the company reached $100 million in annualized sales.
Venture Industries quickly grew and acquired additional molding machines, tool rooms, robotic paint lines, and assembly operations. These leading-edge technologies allowed the company to increasingly take on more programs from domestic and international automakers. To keep up with demand, Venture Industries established several state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities and became a full-service vertically integrated supplier, including the following, which continue to exist today (along with a core group of skilled and experienced employees) as part of the Mayco International/ Venture Global group:
- Nova and Malyn Manufacturing, Fraser, Michigan
- Harper Manufacturing, Clinton Township, Michigan
- Venture/Mound Tool Shop, Sterling Heights, Michigan
- Deluxe Engineering and Prototyping, Fraser, Michigan
- Atlantic Automotive Manufacturing, Benton Harbor, Michigan
- Bailey SMC Manufacturing, Hartford City, Indiana
- Venture Otto South Africa Manufacturing, South Africa
- SVES India Engineering, India
- Venture Australia Manufacturing, Australia
- JVIS China Manufacturing and Tooling, China
The company achieved quality certifications such as QS-9000, ISO-14001, and numerous quality awards followed such as the Grand Award for Innovation from Society of Plastics Engineers, and DaimlerChrysler’s Gold Award for Superior Supplier Performance.
The assets of Mayco Plastics, Inc. were acquired in October 2006. With this purchase, the company began operating a segment of its manufacturing business under the name Mayco International LLC.
The company has made additional acquisitions, including DMG (Australia), TDM/TransGlobal, and has established JVIS – USA and tooling, engineering and manufacturing operations in India and China. The company has been growing rapidly both domestically and internationally, taking on new interior, exterior, engineering and tooling programs.
Today Mayco International/Venture Global, headquartered in Sterling Heights, Michigan, is a multi-billion dollar, Tier 1 supplier with more than 6,000 employees in 36 plants across the USA, China, India, Russia, South Africa, South Korea and Australia.
