Faurecia gets green light to build new North American HQ in Michigan

Article by Anita Panait, on April 4, 2013

Faurecia North America Inc. is now cleared by the Auburn Hills city council to construct a three-story, 278,000-square-foot North American headquarters in the Detroit suburb. The new building will house Faurecia’s administration and a technical center for its automotive seating and exteriors units.

Faurecia, a French-based auto supplier, expects the new headquarters in Auburn, Michigan to be completed in the first quarter of 2014. Faurecia disclosed its plans to construct its new headquarters in Auburn last week. Industry sources expect Faurecia to spend around $30 million to complete its Auburn base, the construction of which will commence this month.

The building will be leased from a local developer. The auto supplier’s new headquarters will ultimately be home to as many as 700 employees, some of whom will be new hires. The employees will come from the company’s Automotive Seating Technical Center, its Oakland Shared Services Center, and the Oakland Technical Center for Automotive Exteriors, according to a news release.

Faurecia will start moving in the employees after the completion of new building. Michael Heneka, president of Faurecia North America, remarked in a news release that the company has grown substantially and is now ready to extend its technical centers and headquarters operations to further support its growth. He noted that Faurecia’s new location presents a unique opportunity to build from the ground up in a way that will most suit their needs. He added that the new base presents a chance to centralize its technical teams and administrative functions.
