Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee, Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe and Faurecia officials announced that the automotive components manufacturer will expand its operations, creating 171 new jobs in Spring Hill.
Located at 3555 Cleburne Road, Faurecia will invest $18 million to expand its existing facility by nearly 100,000 square feet to increase manufacturing capabilities, specifically the production of door panel assemblies for several major OEMs. This expansion comes two years after Faurecia located its manufacturing operations in Tennessee, at which time the company invested $30 million and committed to create nearly 150 new jobs in Maury County.
Founded in 1997, Faurecia is a top ten global automotive supplier with 266 industrial sites and approximately 39 R&D centers in 35 countries worldwide and provides innovative solutions to automotive challenges across four business groups: Seating, Interiors, Clarion Electronics and Clean Mobility. The Spring Hill expansion will support Faurecia’s position as one of the world’s leading suppliers of seat systems, full interior systems, electronics and display technologies, and ultra-low and zero emission solutions.
Over the last five years, TNECD has supported more than 20 economic development projects in Maury County, resulting in 5,500 job commitments and approximately $5 billion in capital investment.
“Today’s announcement demonstrates again why Maury County leads Tennessee in both incoming investment and growth. I would like to thank Faurecia for the additional job opportunities they are creating for our citizens. Additionally, I would like to thank our partners including, Governor Lee, TNECD, TVA, the South-Central Tennessee Development District, the Industrial Development Board of Maury County, the Spring Hill Board of Mayor and Alderman, and the Maury Alliance for their continued support of economic development in Maury County,” said Maury County Mayor Andy Ogles.
“It is especially gratifying when a world-class company like Faurecia doubles-down and reinvests in your city. The City of Spring Hill celebrates Faurecia’s expansion. We are appreciative for the new jobs and additional investment and look forward to Faurecia’s growth and success here,” said Spring Hill Mayor Jim Hagaman.
