About Us

Over 40 Years of Experience, Innovation, and Expertise

Prefix Corporation began in 1979 as an engineering services company, developing innovative design and engineering solutions for the automotive industry. Continuously owned and operated by the same founding family for over 40 years, today the company operates multiple facilities in Michigan with over 300 employees, and has become a single-source American manufacturing, prototype, and concept vehicle solutions provider to automotive, aviation, motion picture, amusement, and a variety of additional industries.

As multiple industries look to Prefix for creating their prototypes, concept vehicles, and innovative new products, the company continues to expand and grow to meet increasing demands for their services. With the early 2022 opening of their new 25+ acre global headquarters in Rochester Hills, new automation equipment in their world-class Auburn Hills paint operation, and substantial investments in state-of-the-art equipment in both facilities, Prefix has established itself as the North American leader in the industry. “We’ve grown our capabilities to include facilities, equipment, and talented staff members who specialize in a variety of areas, best equipped to assist our clients with every stage required to bring new designs to market,” explained Prefix President Eric Zeile.

Prefix capabilities now include: Product Design, Surface Modeling & Engineering, Fabrication and Advanced Composites, Interior Trim, Lighting, Software Development, Engine and Performance, Production Paint and Custom Finishing, Complete Concept Vehicles and Prototypes, Low Volume Production and Sub-assembly.

Prefix has nearly 300 team members working in our impressive Michigan facilities.
