Key Safety Systems Expansion

Key Safety Systems, Inc. (KSS) is a manufacturer of advanced engineering safety products for global automotive and non-automotive markets. KSS has locations in Europe, Asia and North and South America. It just celebrated its 100th year anniversary of providing passive and active systems and sticking by their mission statement of “We Save Lives!”

KSS has plans to expand their Sterling Heights location, which will result in 50 new jobs with the company. These jobs will be in research and development and engineering. This expansion will be an investment of $1.5 million.

Searching for Employees

To fill these new jobs that they are adding, KSS has worked with the city of Sterling Heights to produce a video that will help to attract potential employees. The city will also be helping KSS to put on a talent mixer that will take place on Thursday, December 8th, 2016. The talent mixer will bring potential new employees to their facility to meet with members of KSS’s team and to learn more about the new job opportunities.
