Halla Visteon Climate Control Corp. (HVCC) has celebrated the opening of its first manufacturing facility in South America. The new plant in Atibaia, in the state of Sao Paulo, Brazil, assembles heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) components for automakers in the region. A ceremony marking the start of production was attended by guests including local government officials, customers, suppliers, company leaders and plant employees.
