Financial Impact:

$85 million investment

Employment Impact:

Retention of more than 1,100 in Saline.

Industry Impact:

Faurecia is the sixth-largest automotive supplier worldwide.

Faurecia, an automotive components manufacturer headquartered in Nanterre, France, chose to invest in the Ann Arbor region because of its unique pool of skilled workers, proximity to our customer base, and strategic location globally. Having a plant located in the region positions Faurecia to achieve our objective of becoming the largest automotive interior supplier in North America.

Raymond Boufford, Vice President, Business Transformation

With the new investment, Faurecia’s Saline facility will become a technology plant that focuses on core technologies like injection molding, skin manufacturing and foaming operations for interior systems. Faurecia is reconfiguring the plant into a streamlined, one-piece flow operation.
