Jeff Bucher, started JB Autotech after leaving his position at GM. His experience in the automotive field gave him a perspective that allowed him to see the big picture. Jeff started the company in his basement, sketching ideas for various customers. The projects were outsourced to moonlighting CAD designers and Jeff would complete the design reviews at the customer’s site. Soon enough, Jeff had a small building with a machine shop, and a couple of designers on staff. Today, JB Autotech has a 43,000-sq. ft. facility in Livonia, and two facilities, one 15,000-sq. ft and one 20,000-sq. ft located in Westland.
