Faurecia, a leading automotive technology company developing solutions for sustainable mobility and smart life on board, began construction on its new $60 million production facility in Blue Springs, Missouri. The new 250,000 sq. ft. facility is Faurecia’s third facility in Missouri and will manufacture and assemble door panels and instrument panels using the latest technologies.
“Blue Springs has the right people with the right expertise, which enables Faurecia to continue our strong growth in North America,” said Donald Hampton Jr., president of Faurecia Interiors in North America. “This opportunity is greatly attributed to the exceptional partnerships we enjoy with community leadership, and the highly motivated and skilled workforce in this state.”
Across the state, Missouri talent drives automotive manufacturing into the future with significant production from Ford and GM. Missouri’s automotive manufacturing plants are strategically located on the North American Automotive Alley that stretches from Toronto to Mexico City, and Missouri’s Kansas City area is the second largest automotive trade hub behind Detroit, according to Brookings.
