This business is completely untrustworthy, I certainly would not recommend doing business with them, they have zero credability, they plow & plunder through their employees & customers without any respect or regard. Their management team 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 want to start by saying that it is unfortunate that anyone looses their job, especially in todays troublesome economy. It is also unfortunate that people decide to voice their uneducated opinions on such a vocal scale. ISI was a failing business long before we were aquainted. It's dated product, large overhead and poor business practices are what lead to it's demise. If you desire someone to blame, look to your lathargic managment team, uninspired engineers, or the over processed manufacturing that choked your profits. Robert Guerra stated at an all hands meeting in saline that ISI was the biggest blunder Norgren had made. Impending doom. Hotels were needed to staff managment spread over two facilities, and they have to eat. Sorry if that offends. Best of luck to the futures of all those who were and are employed by Norgren. Hopefully this helps put this unfortunate incident to rest.

Guess it is true, seems you drank the Saline water also. As to the hotel rooms and needing to eat, everyone else brought or bought their lunch, didn't eat off the profits everyday like hogs, everyone else was expected to drive the distance and be happy to do it, guess it was only too far when it was the selected few, everyone involved knows who the failing company was and it certainly wasn't ISI. Customers will attest to that, they never had a problem until the robots arrived and they couldn't get answers, products or even anyone from Saline that cared, mostly because they were too busy crowding in a little group eating that free lunch, sad thing is they are still at it and they still aren't being truthful to the existing employees. Wonder what they will do when the FREE lunch is done.

This means everything in your "The Key" comment is a joke, the people that see what's happening everyday know it's a joke so have some respect and be honest. Were still waiting for the "New Location" which is part of the disception to keep people in false hope.

Hoping Mr. Pomeranski can salvage the damage done to this company by "The Key" and his "soldiers". The mess never would have happened if Mr. Pomeranski was left here to begin with hopefully it is not too late, Good Luck Mr. Pomeranski, watch your back this time your a good man.

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.

Sounds like a bunch of angry folks that got laid off. Seems to be very little fact in the angry statements.

And then to comment on ruining a beautiful building? Folks, move on with your lives. Most of these posts contain bad information. No need in posting and getting angry about the past. Go out an make a great future for yourselves.

Once again "What-A-Shame" you have it ALL wrong, just because someone posted the truth about the destruction to a business does not mean it's from "angry laid off folk" that couldn't be further from the truth, actually the laid off folk from Norgren are the fortunate ones considering what the former Syron management did to the company. I guess you feel no other alternative than to try and defuse the truth, you must feel backed up against a wall because of the screwed up mess your now left with.

Ok so we all agree on one thing, it's unfortunate when anyone loses their job, beyond that the rest of this statement is false. ISI was NEVER a losing coming until the little Syron Saline Army starting filing in like little clonned ants on a plunder and destroy mission. The results speak for themself, turn loose a bunch of wannabe's that think they are entitled because their friend is the new CEO and destrustion of a company is not far away. Seems if your friend is the CEO and your from Syron, no experience or knowledge of product or a company is needed. Also seems the motto of the Saline crew is grab all you can, while you can, walk over everyone in the way to grab it and then run and hide as fast as you can with your tail between your legs. Good job "Syron" "Norgren" destruction mission accomplished.

Yes this company has no morals with their employees. I was hired in the company after 8 months of being with a temp service they then had a small celebration with me gave me all this company stuff on Halloween rite wat a good day for me so I go looking for a new home for my family closer to the job because yes better for me and my 3 children. So I find a nice house the landlord like I have a couple on the way to put down a deposit so I say no mono this is why I work so hard I'm goin to the bank and get the whole amount ok everyone knows it's costly to move well we start packing up that day started moving small things all the way to Canton Mi from Detroit mi like this wasn't easy!!! So ok the next week comes and what do they do on the day that Obama was named President they give me a pink slip like litter all one week later I was laid off by this company now withe being the only beautiful black woman in the company I didn't understand how is this happening lol they said sorry it was a money issue within the company I forgot what they called it but lol yes they tried to give firing me a fancy name but this was the funny thing in the ten hours we were there working the 5 you hear five other electrical assemblers and our supervisor would go outside for like 15 mins every hour and take a cigarette break not clock out cuz it's just a cigarette break so if you are tryin to save the company money how does this work I'm the only one didn't take extra breaks because I was the only non smoker that worked up in that department how would firing the only working person would notsave the company money!! So they gave me under a $1000 and sent me on my way I had to move back in with my family cuz i knew I would not be able to move back into my old home or pay to stay where I moved so need less to say this company dosent care what they do to people who are willing to make changes to be a part of their company
