The Mt. Clemens/Clinton Township MI facility of Norgren is moving into the Saline MI facility. I certainly would not reommend doing business with them, they have zero credability, they plow & plunder through their employees & customers without any respect or regard. Their management team from (Syron Engineering) Saline MI consist of a group of cloned robots without any backbone, knowledge or talent. Too bad Norgren Corporate out of Littleton CO didn't have enough forsight to see the destruction the so called leader of this division was creating. Him & his team of robots turned a very productive, & excellent company to work for into a losing company without a future. I'm not a disgruntled employee, I'm a grateful employee to be moving on to a better future & not have to witness the wasteful entitled attitude and actions of this company anymore, it has been such a sad destructive site to witness. The only thing this management team is interested in is eating free meals on the expense account, they look like a bunch on hogs at the hog trough nervously waiting for the "free lunch to arrive" staying in hotels several nights per week also on the company expense account. Of course it is alot of work hiding these expenses from the corporate office but easy enough to cover for awhile by letting employees go & selling of equipment. Guess nobody bothered to tell them that in this ecomony & hard times successful companies no longer allow a few chosen employees of the company to eat & live off the company while the honorable employee's work hard & struggle with pride as they do an honest day's work for their pay. Honorable people DO NOT EXPECT A FREE RIDE at others expense, Honorable people have more pride than that.

To All the Employess that have been mistreated & lied to, Best Wishes & Bless You as you move forward, keep your heads & hearts up, in spite of this management team, there are still good people, good jobs & decent employers with integrity out there.

I agree, they have destroyed a good company. I am not a disgruntled employee either, but I really enjoyed working for the company. I was 100% loyal to them as an employee and they just did not care at all. They now have nobody left working there that has any knowledge of any of the products, so I am sure the quality and reliability will go down the drain. Anyone who stays on at this company, Syron included, is putting their life in the hands of a fool. How can you live with that?

Just when you think they can't do any worse damage, they do, The rest of the country should feel lucky these "people" will soon be hidden in tiny Saline MI again, too bad they weren't kept there in the first place. Jobs may be hard to come by but working for these thugs can ruin your health & self esteem in a very short time.

If you really want to gage go look on the Saline MI Forum Topix and read the phony response from "The Key" We all know what really happened, the original plan of Syron was to distroy ISI/ERIE and then they would stand alone again in their silly little robot world.

Robert Guerrea needs to make a trip to Mich. and check expense claims submitted by management. The current management still hasn't gotten the message, shame shame on them

These are a couple of post copied off the Saline Mi Forum Topix thread,(Norgren NAS formerly Syron.) Sure hoping someone from corprate Norgren in Littleton see this.
After almost40 years at ISI and being a part of the executive management team while it was privately owned, ISI was a highly successful R&D product development company that reached near $100,000,000.00 in yearly sales. In December of 1996, Norgren purchased ISI and the yearly sales were around $72,000,000.00, still a very healthy company. Norgren began changing management with people that may have been good people, but, had no clue how the automotive market worked. Experienced and knowledgeable people were being let go by the dozens and new product development came to a stand still because of idiotic project approval processes by Norgren corporate that caused ISI to miss every window of new product opportunity. With Norgren at the helm, the ISI sector of business slid steadily downward. Every president appointed had no automotive market experience. Those of us that had the experience were basically ignored and the downward spiral continued. By 2007 the ISI yearly sales was somewhere around 18 to 20 million in and struggling. If only Norgren kept the original owners on board for the agreed 5 years they were supposed to and kept key management on board we may have been able to train new management the ropes and ISI may have turned out to still be the most respected and successful automation and tooling supplier in the world. Even though some may have had the best intentions in the world, ignorance can never replace experience
So well said, those of us that remember this Company have pride in what we designed and produced that pride has turned to such embarrassment that a few "Key" people with zero knowledge were allowed to man the reins that ruined such a successful company. Shame on you Norgren for turning your backs and allowing that disasterous group from Saline Mi to destroy the world-wide desired ISI products, I'm sure sombody is finding it impossible to explain this disaster to corporate. By the way after ruining the beautiful building in Clinton Twp./Mt. Clemens and then leaving a trail with your tail between your legs can't hide the destruction you left behind. I'd like to see the updated resume's of the so called management team thats left there, hope they realize they can't hide what they've been a part of.
