To Sustain Its Momentum, Faurecia North America Grows Into A New Headquarters In Auburn Hills

AUBURN HILLS, Mich., April 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Three years into a remarkable surge in growth, Faurecia North America today announced more details of its plans for a new headquarters building in Auburn Hills, Mich., at the hub of activity for southeast Michigan's auto industry.

Since 2010, Faurecia—North America's eighth-largest automotive supplier and the sixth-largest globally—has opened 15 new plants and tech centers in the U.S., Mexico and Canada and has nearly doubled the size of its workforce to more than 20,000. The region now accounts for 30% of Faurecia's global sales. In Michigan, that growth has taken the form of six new locations since 2010 and a total of 13 sites that collectively employ more than 4,000 people. Its success has led Faurecia North America to begin construction this month on a new headquarters building that also will house technical centers for Faurecia Automotive Seating and Faurecia Automotive Exteriors.

"As the auto industry has reinvented itself over the past few years, Faurecia has been a notable success story," said Faurecia North America President Mike Heneka. "We have grown substantially and now we are ready to extend our technical centers and headquarters operations to further support that growth. Our new location presents a distinctive opportunity to build from the ground up in a way that most suits our needs and to centralize our technical teams and administrative functions."

The new headquarters facility, at 2800 High Meadow Circle in Oakland Technology Park near I-75 and University Drive, positions Faurecia North America in a more highly visible, easily accessible, more spacious location that is tailored to its needs. Upon the building's completion in the spring of 2014, up to 700 employees will be transferred to the building from three smaller Michigan facilities: the current Faurecia Automotive Seating Technical Center on Meijer Drive in Troy; Faurecia's Oakland Shared Services Center on Squirrel Road in Auburn Hills; and its Oakland Technical Center for Automotive Exteriors on W. Entrance Drive in Auburn Hills. The Faurecia Interior Systems Technical Center will remain at its current location at 2500 Executive Hills Blvd in Auburn Hills. Faurecia Emissions Control Technologies will continue to be based in Columbus, Ind.  

The technical centers in the new facility will carry out prototype development, testing and light assembly activities to further Faurecia North America's commitment to pioneering advanced vehicle systems to meet the auto industry's evolving needs.
