All month long Missouri Partnership is taking a look back at some of Missouri’s biggest stories in economic development from the past year, and today we are taking a look back at Faurecia’s expansion in Blue Springs, Missouri.
In February, Faurecia, a leading automotive technology company developing solutions for sustainable mobility and smart life on board, announced plans to open a new Interiors production facility in Blue Springs, Missouri. The new facility will create more than 300 new jobs and will ramp up to full production by the end of 2020. Upon completion, total investment is expected to be in excess of $60 million for the approximately 250,000 square foot plant.
“Faurecia is proud to open this new site and to provide new opportunities for local jobseekers,” said Donald Hampton, Jr., president of Faurecia Interiors in North America. “Kansas City Metro and the Blue Springs area are known for being a source of excellence in American manufacturing and we’re looking forward to building on that expertise and skill set as we continue to provide the very best to our customers.”
