TROY, MICH. – Nov. 15, 2016 – The Michigan investment bankers of Doeren Mayhew Capital Advisors, a middle-market investment banking firm, assisted Gissing Automotive Systems, LLC with its investment in ConForm Automotive.

Gissing Automotive Systems, a wholly owned subsidiary of Wuxi Gissing Auto Parts Co. Ltd., is a China-based leading designer and manufacturer of interior acoustic parts, special equipment and molds for the global automotive market.
