About Innovative Automation
Innovative Automation is owned by Ursula and Mike Bongiovanni. IA has been operating in Southeast Michigan since 2000. IA has developed technologies for the manufacturing industry and specifically for the manufacture of reciprocating stamped heat exchangers. The acquisition of Livernois Engineering provided premier level technologies for tooling and manufacture of roll formed heat exchangers. Adding the Tridan technologies to our portfolio was the next natural extension to allow for the servicing of the entire heat exchanger industry all under one umbrella.
