Faurecia has announced plans to open a new production facility in Toledo, Ohio. The new facility will create more than 100 new jobs and officially begin production activity in April 2019, ramping up to full production within a few months.

Faurecia will make an estimated investment of USD11 million to begin operations in the 73,000 square foot plant. Faurecia plans to manufacture and assemble full instrument panels in the proposed facility. 

"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. "We look forward to building on Toledo's reputation for automotive expertise and excellence as we provide our customers with high-quality products."

"The positive momentum our city has right now is unmistakable, and big employers like Faurecia are taking notice," said Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz. "Toledo is gaining a national reputation as a city that is on the rise."

"Faurecia becoming a part of Overland Parkway is another great addition for Toledo, bringing more jobs and helping with the revitalization of manufacturing in Toledo," said Ed Harmon, president of NAI Harmon and Harmon Development. "The Harmon Group is proud to play a part in this growth."

The project is still contingent on final approvals at the state and local level. The company currently employs more than 750 people in Ohio at its Clean Mobility facilities in Franklin, Toledo and Troy.
