LANSING — The Nanterre, France-based automotive supplier Faurecia will expand its Faurecia Automotive Seating LLC plant in Sterling Heights with support from the Michigan Strategic Fund, the Michigan Economic Development Corp. said Friday.
The project is expected to generate more than $8 million in new private investment and add 90 new jobs. That resulted in a $350,000 Michigan Business Development Program performance-based grant to the supplier.
Faurecia plans to install new equipment and improve a loading dock area to meet the demands of a new contract for seating from an unnamed automaker.
Michigan was chosen over a competing site in Toledo, Ohio.
The city of Sterling Heights has offered support to the project in the form of marketing andr job promotional assistance.
