Faurecia Interior Systems will manufacture door panel assemblies at a new 145,000-square-foot facility in Spring Hill, TN. The automotive components manufacturer plans to create 143 new jobs and invest more than $30 million in Maury County.
“We are excited to expand our presence in North America to the Spring Hill community of Tennessee,” said Donald Hampton, Jr., president of Faurecia Interior Systems in North America. “Exceptional partnerships with community leadership, and the highly motivated and skilled workforce in this state, made this opportunity possible. I know that together we will continue to deliver the best in high-quality products to our customers.”
With 300 sites including 30 R&D centers in 35 countries around the world, Faurecia is now a global leader in its three areas of business: automotive seating, interior systems and emissions control technologies. Faurecia is the world’s top supplier of seat frames and mechanisms, emissions control technologies and vehicle interiors.
“I want to thank Faurecia for choosing to locate its new facility in Spring Hill,” said Gov. Bill Haslam. “Tennessee’s automotive sector continues to be one of our strongest industries with more than 135,000 automotive workers across the state. The creation of these 140 positions in Maury County will help Tennessee not only lead in the automotive sector, but in the creation of high-quality manufacturing jobs.”
“Since 2011, TNECD has secured more than 9,000 new job commitments in Maury County. I thank Faurecia for choosing to locate its new manufacturing facility in Tennessee,” said Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe. “With 143 new jobs, Maury County and Spring Hill will continue to have strong economic momentum, which will create a better living and working environment for its residents.”
“We are thrilled to see the strong results of what has been a successful economic development effort by all agencies involved, including the assistance of Maury Alliance and TNECD,” said Spring Hill Economic Development Coordinator Kayce Williams. “I can’t overstate how proud we are to have another manufacturing supplier choose to locate its facility in Spring Hill.”
