IMA/Advanced Assembly started in 2005 as joint ventures of Comer Holdings and Lear Corporation. Over the course of his time with Lear, Mazda and GM, CEO Jim Comer had built a reputation as having the ability to raise up the talent around him, build new operations and turn around facilities that didn’t meet standards. He was well-regarded as a leader and approached by Lear to lead IMA/Advanced Assembly along with his handpicked and experienced leadership team – many of who bring decades of experience themselves.
In a short time, we have built a strong reputation as being reliable and providing the highest quality products and services. But our success means nothing unless it is shared beyond our walls. CEO Jim Comer believes in giving back to the community and is driven to instill that same commitment in everyone that works with IMA/Advanced Assembly. He holds memberships on various local, state and community boards, such as Sinai-Grace Hospital, Arts League of Michigan and VIP Mentoring. In addition, he’s worked with various other charitable organizations including being a member of the Virgil H. Carr Society for Leadership Giving and the Alexis de Tocqueville Society for United Way. In 2003, Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm, appointed Comer to the position of Commissioner on the Michigan Community Services Commission and was honored in 2005 by President George W. Bush with the President’s Volunteer Service Award.
With leadership that is looking to provide opportunities for you to thrive and have success, it’s a dynamic place to work. We operate with a great amount of pride at IMA/Advanced Assembly and it’s an exciting time to be a part of the company as we continue to grow and diversify. But as we grow, what will remain unchanged is our mission to be an organization that provides for our people.
