Mary Buchzeiger


Mary Buchzeiger's Sure Solutions is a growing casting, forging and stamping supplier to the automotive and heavy truck industries. At its corporate headquarters in Waterford, Mich., they peform inspection, light assembly, repackaging, storage, warehousing and distribution.

For many years, they struggled with sourcing overseas manufacturing through trading companies and experienced quality, delivery and communication issues.  In 2009 Mary made a decision to expand their operations and invest in building their own resources overseas.  Many years, Skype meetings and frequent flyer miles later, Sure Solutions has established a deep global manufacturing footprint.  They now have quality, logistics and engineering teams in place throughout Taiwan, India and China that work hand-in-hand with both their manufacturing partners and global network of customers. 

The investment paid off as sales have skyrocketed from just under $4 million in 2009 to over $12 million in 2013, with projected growth for 2014 at well over $15 million. Future expansion includes Croatia, Brazil, Prague and Mexico, an inspection/assembly/warehousing facility in Ningbo, China and a new office in downtown Shanghai.  These changes have brought more job opportunities to their U.S. operations in the form of a 25% increase in staff with greater growth expected.

For all of her hard work in growing her business across borders and oceans into new economies, Mary Buchzeiger's Sure Solutions most certainly exemplifies a Global Business.
