Norma Wallis, Dearborn native and owner of Inkster-based Livernois Vehicle Development, has been interested in cars her entire life. "I've always enjoyed the specialty vehicles, the paint and the rough sounds of the headers and exhaust," Wallis said. Wallis's father and previous owner of the company, the late Bernard J. Wallis, was involved in the automotive industry for nearly 60 years. Livernois Engineering Company was founded in 1950 under his ownership. In the 1990s, Norma Wallis purchased her father's parts of the company and made it an expansion of what her father had created, renaming it "Livernois Vehicle Development. "Dad focused on tooling, and I wanted to be more in the automotives," Norma Wallis said.

The American Arab Chamber applauds New Member Norma Wallis President/CEO of Livernois Vehcicle Development
American Arab Newsletter February 11, 2009
In an ongoing era of economic downturns and adverse market conditions, one local business owner has made a bold decision to increase her stake in the automotive industry with an expansion in an economically challenged area of western Wayne County that signals positive reinforcement from within a beleaguered supply base, as well as a long-term commitment to create new jobs in the community. Norma Wallis, President and CEO of Livernois Vehicle Development, a Tier One Supplier to Ford Motor Company and Women's Business Enterprise (WBE) is set to announce the official opening of the Wallis Technical Center, located at 2850 John Daly in Inkster, Michigan, in conjunction with the opening of the Ford Paint & Body Technology Center, which is housed in the Wallis Technical Center, in a private reception on Thursday, February 12th, 2009.
The Wallis Technical Center bears the name of the late Bernard J. Wallis, a manufacturing icon in the Detroit area for nearly 60 years, and the father of Norma Wallis. His legacy included the development and launch of products through partnerships with numerous major automotive companies.
Norma Wallis, of Livernois, said the building is on a prime piece of property, and that her company has been in negotiations with the owner for several weeks. "We do a lot of things that may be suitable for the facility," she said. We are involved in motorsports. A lot is going to depend on the city's willingness to work with us. She added that the company and the city have worked amicably in the past.
Livernois Vehicle Development submitted paperwork to the city on April 6, and the city council scheduled a public hearing for June 18 to hear questions from the public concerning the requested 12-year tax break. The company is currently planning $3 million in improvements to the former Carron & Co. facility, which is located at 27600 Princeton Road, near the city public works yard. The company estimates at $2.4 million in improvements are being made to the building and surrounding land. Another $694,000 in machinery, equipment, furniture and fixture installation is under way, according to the abatement application. Renovations would be needed at the Rosenau site as well, given that the facility has been vacant for so many years and is outdated, said Wallis. "We would likely have to make some improvements," she said.
Tuned up for success - Norma Wallis brings biz expertise to motorsports venture
After expanding a formerly small division of the family business, Norma Wallis is revving up her fledging motorsports company. Over the past few years, Livernois Motorsports L.L.C. has caught onto the growing "tuners" market, named after those who like to modify, or "tune," cars. Not unlike Wallis, who drives a black Mustang Cobra modified to deliver 660 horsepower. Livernois Motorsports specializes in high-performance cars, engines and racers. The Dearborn Heights company builds and installs engines, cylinder heads, turbochargers and other products. It also has a retail outlet that sells accessories. "It's tough to make it in this business, but that's the fun part," Wallis said.
