CHONGQING, CHINA — International Automotive Components has opened its first wholly-owned manufacturing site in China, with production of multiple interior parts in Chongqing.

The 112,000-square-foot plant is also IAC's second global facility to make its proprietary auto skin process, FastKast, which uses thermoplastic polyolefin and PVC resins to improve the look and feel of Class A surfaces, the company said in an April 16 news release.

The new Chongqing facility employs 275 and makes instrument panels, door panels, floor consoles and other interior parts for two Ford Motor Co. models. The site will also produce parts for Volvo and a future Suzuki Motor Corp. vehicle.

IAC, with an international global office in Luxembourg, has 17 facilities in China along with six technical and engineering centers. The Chongqing site is the second for the company in the city, but consolidates production for both plants.
