Faurecia Interior Systems Inc. has earmarked Spring Hill, Tenn., for a factory that will make door panels when it comes on stream in July 2019. The Aug. 28 announcement follows a February announcement for a similar, larger plant slated for Blue Springs, Mo. On the drawing board awaiting approvals is an instrument panel manufacturing facility for Ohio.
The plant, due to come on stream in late 2019, will specialize in extruding thin PS foam for acoustic and thermal insulation of floating floors like laminate, parquet and vinyl floor systems. Such thin foams are used by do-it-yourself customers as well as flooring manufacturers.
