A MESSAGE FROM THE CEO

Why the name Avancez?  Because the company was founded as an automotive supplier birthed in Detroit on the heels of challenging industry times, just as Detroit’s revitalization began to take hold.  The name is a French word and Detroit was settled by the French in 1701 as a fur trading post.

Over time, Detroit transformed itself into a world-class industrial powerhouse and the fourth largest American city by the mid-20th century; but by the latter 20th century, Detroit experienced a sustained economic downturn.  This recession lasted for quite some time but now the city is reinventing itself and undergoing a groundbreaking renaissance.  Detroit, the motor city, always finds a way to move forward.

Out of homage to this French history and the fact that Detroit knows how to survive, our company’s name was born.  Avancez is a French word that means to progress, advance, and keep going.  At Avancez, we do exactly that; we are committed to progress, we continue to advance our future, and even in the face of obstacles and challenge, we always keep going.  We live in a fast paced just-in-time environment that propels us forward.

We also want people who are eager to advance themselves; team members who are up for a challenge and focused on progress.  I hope that you will investigate our job openings so perhaps you can Avancez with us.

Sincerely,
Kathryn Nichols
