Auto parts maker, Faurecia, breaks ground on $30M facility, creating 143 jobs

Faurecia

After a successful City of Spring Hill economic development effort, Faurecia, the automotive components manufacturer, will invest more than $30 million into a facility off Cleburne Road in Spring Hill where it will create 143 new jobs.

Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam, Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe, and Faurecia Interior Systems officials announced the company's news Tuesday, Aug. 28, at a well-attended groundbreaking ceremony.

Founded in 1997, Faurecia is a major leader in the global automotive industry. With 300 sites including 30 R&D centers in 35 countries around the world, Faurecia is now a global leader in its three areas of business: automotive seating, interior systems and emissions control technologies. Faurecia is the world’s top supplier of seat frames and mechanisms, emissions control technologies and vehicle interiors.

“We would like to thank Faurecia for choosing Spring Hill. Having an operation like Faurecia locate a facility here is phenomenal for our growing city,” Spring Hill Mayor Rick Graham said. “It’s a perfect complement to Spring Hill’s existing industries. Faurecia will create well-paying jobs here at home, which will spawn more local economic growth.”

"We are thrilled to see the strong results of what has been a successful economic development effort by all agencies involved, including the assistance of Maury Alliance and TNECD,” Spring Hill Economic Development Coordinator Kayce Williams said. "I can’t overstate how proud we are to have another manufacturing supplier choose to locate its facility in Spring Hill.”

With this location, Faurecia plans to manufacture door panel assemblies. The company plans on building a new 145,000 square foot facility located at 3555 Cleburne Road.

“I want to thank Faurecia for choosing to locate its new facility in Spring Hill,” Haslam said. “Tennessee’s automotive sector continues to be one of our strongest industries with more than 135,000 automotive workers across the state. The creation of these 140 positions in Maury County will help Tennessee not only lead in the automotive sector, but in the creation of high-quality manufacturing jobs.” 

“Since 2011, TNECD has secured more than 9,000 new job commitments in Maury County. I thank Faurecia for choosing to locate its new manufacturing facility in Tennessee,” Rolfe said. “With 143 new jobs, Maury County and Spring Hill will continue to have strong economic momentum, which will create a better living and working environment for its residents.”

“We are excited to expand our presence in North America to the Spring Hill community of Tennessee,” said Donald Hampton, Jr., president of Faurecia Interior Systems in North America. “Exceptional partnerships with community leadership, and the highly motivated and skilled workforce in this state, made this opportunity possible. I know that together we will continue to deliver the best in high-quality products to our customers.” 

Local leaders and the Tennessee Valley Authority thanked Faurecia for its investment in Spring Hill.

“Maury County is excited by the decision made by Faurecia to locate its facility in Spring Hill, Tennessee,” said Maury County Mayor Charlie Norman. “It is great to have an exceptional company with good-paying jobs move to Maury County.” 

“TVA and Columbia Power and Water Systems congratulate Faurecia on its decision to locate in Maury County,” said TVA Senior Vice President of Economic Development John Bradley. “Helping to facilitate new job creation is fundamental to TVA’s mission of service and we are proud to partner with the Maury Alliance and Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development to help further that mission.” 

Spring Hill and Maury County are represented by Sen. Joey Hensley (R – Hohenwald), Rep. Sheila Butt (R – Columbia) and Rep. Michael Curcio (R – Dickson) in the Tennessee General Assembly.
