Visteon Unveils Design Of New Corporate Offices

The Dearborn, Mich.-based Visteon Corp.has unveiled the design of its new corporate campus under construction in Van Buren Township, Mich.

Featured at the spring meeting of the Urban Land Institute, the campus is designed to facilitate innovation through collaboration among customers, employees and supplier partners. The 265-acre site is called Visteon Village.

"Visteon Village is designed to enhance our customer-facing organization, create a sense of unity among our people and help us share best practices," says Mike Johnston, president and chief operating officer. "The business model Visteon is creating is one of an aligned, boundary-less organization geared toward operational excellence. Visteon Village will help us expand and evolve that model."

Much of the administrative, customer support and research and development work now performed at about 15 non-manufacturing Visteon sites throughout southeastern Michigan will be consolidated at the Village, according to the company.

Visteon says the village will enhance the ability of its employees to work as a team in an environment geared toward sharing information, collaborating and supporting one another. That atmosphere, along with centrally locating functions, will help the company better support its customers and develop the innovative products they want and need. It also allows Visteon to better prioritize its resources to move products seamlessly from creation to launch.

"Visteon Village personifies our commitment to being a customer-facing organization," says Stacy Fox, Visteon's senior vice president, corporate transactions & legal affairs, and Visteon Village project champion. "Our customers, suppliers, employees and visitors will experience an energized atmosphere designed to encourage creativity, collaboration and innovation."

When completed, the 800,000- to 1-million-square-foot Visteon Village will feature a central "Town Center" building overlooking a 37-acre lake, as well as seven other buildings containing labs and offices along a "Main Street."

Groundbreaking on the site occurred last summer, and completion of the main buildings is scheduled for mid-2004. A phase-two development plan is under consideration.
