Faurecia Seating LLC, a division of French-based Faurecia SA, will build a new manufacturing facility in Simpsonville, Ky.
The automotive seating manufacturer plans to build on a greenfield site leased in Shelby County's Kingbrook Commerce Park, the company announced Sept. 11. The 122,000-square-foot facility represents an $18.8 million investment and will include 410 new jobs.
Faurecia SA is the sixth-largest automotive supplier in North America, according to rankings from Plastics News sister publication Automotive News. Faurecia already operates plants for interior systems and emissions control technologies in nearby Louisville.
The Simpsonville facility is expected to come on-line in 2016. The company has been preliminarily approved for performance-based tax incentives of up to $3 million through the Kentucky Business Investment program.
