By Liz White, UT contributing editorTokyo-Automotive seating and interiors supplier Faurecia is to open a technical centre and new headquarters in Shin-Yokohama, Japan, in a move designed, “to strengthen its business worldwide with Japanese automakers,” the firm said. The new site, which will be inaugurated in September, will house Faurecia’s development teams for seating, interior systems and exhaust activities under one roof. French-headquartered Faurecia said the increased space will enable Faurecia to expand these teams, adding that it also “hopes to increase the number of staff working with Japanese partners and OEMs to around 100 in the coming years.” The site will also house sales and marketing teams for Toyota, Nissan, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Suzuki and Honda.”
