In an interesting reversal of recent trends in the U.S. auto parts industry, French parts supplier Faurecia announced Wednesday that it will open six new plants in North America in 2006.
According to Automotive News, the company already has 17 facilities in the U.S.

A global supplier, Faurecia employs 60,000 at 160 sites in 28 countries, with worldwide sales of about $13 billion. The company specializes in seats, cockpits, acoustic packages, doors, exhaust systems and front ends (including the BMW 1-series unit pictured).

Faurecia North America is headquartered in Troy, Michigan. The company says its new plants will be located in Michigan, Ohio and South Carolina. According to a company statement, the expansion will support production for new programs with several OEMs.
