Danotek Motion Technologies' shift to wind turbines generates 25 hires

A year and a half ago, Danotek Motion Technologies made the shift to wind turbine technology and hasn't looked back.

Since then it has moved from Ann Arbor to a bigger facility in Canton and gone on a hiring spree. The 50-person company has doubled its staff in the last 18 months and expects to hire more. Don Naab, president & CEO of Danotek Motion Technologies, says his company is on "the cusp of significant growth."

"We're in a hiring mode," Naab says. "I have something like 15 positions I need to fill this year." Those positions are mostly engineering jobs. Naab expects to add another 15-20 people in 2011.

Danotek Motion Technologies got its start in the automotive industry in 2001, but switched to wind turbines after a significant infusion of venture capital from the likes of Silicon Valley-based Khosla Ventures and San Francisco-based CMEA. Today the company makes the larger generators for the big wind turbines. Its current operations are designed to produce 4,000 of those generators annually.
