Coliant expands by 6 people, opens new office in Sterling Heights

Coliant has opened a new office in the Macomb-OU INCubator with offices at the Velocity Collaboration Center in Sterling Heights, a move that has led the Warren-based company to expand its staff.

The 8-year-old firm employs 17 people and the occasional intern. It has hired six people over the last year, many of which are staffing the new office in Sterling Heights.

Coliant created Powerlet, an electrical accessory in the powersport industry that allows users of things like motorcycles and ATVs to plug their gadgets into the vehicle. The company has expanded its domestic sales of this product and is expanding into military markets.

"By focusing on sales we have grown exponentially," says Adam Bonislawski, vice president of sales for Coliant.

Coliant is also a semi-finalist in the Accelerate Michigan Innovation Competition. The company hopes to win the competition's $500,000 grand prize or one of its secondary prizes, which are usually in the five-figure range.

"Access to capital is always necessary for a growing business," Bonislawski says. "We have to keep an eye out for any opportunities for new capital."
