NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee, Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe and Faurecia officials announced today that the automotive components manufacturer will expand its operations, creating 171 new jobs in Spring Hill.

Located at 3555 Cleburne Road, Faurecia will invest $18 million to expand its existing facility by nearly 100,000 square feet to increase manufacturing capabilities, specifically the production of door panel assemblies for several major OEMs. This expansion comes two years after Faurecia located its manufacturing operations in Tennessee, at which time the company invested $30 million and committed to create nearly 150 new jobs in Maury County.

Founded in 1997, Faurecia is a top ten global automotive supplier with 266 industrial sites and approximately 39 R&D centers in 35 countries worldwide and provides innovative solutions to automotive challenges across four business groups: Seating, Interiors, Clarion Electronics and Clean Mobility. The Spring Hill expansion will support Faurecia’s position as one of the world’s leading suppliers of seat systems, full interior systems, electronics and display technologies, and ultra-low and zero emission solutions.

Over the last five years, TNECD has supported more than 20 economic development projects in Maury County, resulting in 5,500 job commitments and approximately $5 billion in capital investment.
