Michigan Tube Division is located at 6400 Love Road and occupies approximately 4.5 acres of land. Historic operation on-site included tooling, die casting, plating, and electroplating activities. Due to these historic activities, PFAS sampling was conducted on and off site in 2023. The highest groundwater sampling result was 52.97 ppt PFOS (compared to 16 ppt).

The groundwater generally flows to the west towards an unnamed drain.
