Faurecia to Build $60M Manufacturing Facility in Missouri



The Kansas City Area Development Council announced that Faurecia, an automotive technology company, will build a $60 million, 250,000 sq. ft. interiors production facility in Blue Springs, MO., part of the Kansas City area. The company, a provider of automotive seating, interior systems and clean mobility, will create 300 jobs.

Faurecia will build a facility on a 25-acre parcel adjacent to NE 20th Street on the north side of Interstate 70 in Blue Springs. The plant will manufacture and assemble door and instrument panels using the latest technologies.

The company chose the Kansas City region for its location because of its proximity to its customers and a skilled workforce that is familiar with the manufacturing and automotive industry.

"Faurecia is proud to open this new site and to provide opportunities for local job seekers," said Donald Hampton Jr., President of Faurecia Interiors in North America. "The Kansas City metro and the Blue Springs area are known for being a source of excellence in American manufacturing, and we are looking forward to building on that expertise and skill set as we continue to provide the very best to our customers."

A recent study by the Brookings Institute listed the Kansas City region as the second most important automotive center in the U.S. The region is home to large-scale automotive manufacturing operations for General Motors and Ford, which have expanded to become the region's largest manufacturing employers.

"Kansas City is an attractive location for manufacturers because of the region's competitive transportation costs, reducing production expenses, as well as our skilled workforce and central U.S. location," said Chris Gutierrez, President, KC SmartPort.
