The world’s top supplier of vehicle interiors, Faurecia Interior Systems develops and produces:
Cars are increasingly being seen as a true living space. Their users want an interior that is a reflection of themselves. They’re looking for customized comfort and style that lets everyone enjoy a unique road and driving experience.
Faurecia relies on its in-house expertise to supply top-quality products with an excellent cost-performance ratio to every market segment. In particular, the Group draws on its specialized know-how in cut-and-sew techniques, applied to genuine leather as well as polyurethane- or PVC-based thermoplastics.
From the instrument panel to the door panels and center console, Faurecia can customize nearly every surface that contributes to the visual ambiance of the vehicle interior. Interior decoration has become a priority for automakers, and Faurecia uses a wide array of materials (wood, skins, leather, textiles, brushed or polished aluminum, etc.) and technology to create a full range of interior environments for every market segment.
Faurecia is also developing and integrating renewable, bio-based materials as part of a long-term campaign to produce lighter components. For example, one of its technologies combines natural hemp fibers with a polypropylene resin to yield a 25% weight reduction over glass-reinforced polypropylene.
Acoustics play a key role in vehicle comfort. Faurecia Interior Systems offers its customers acoustic solutions that ensure optimal vehicle quality, cost and weight, thanks to some of the most sophisticated acoustic analysis and simulation tools in the world. These solutions include the Light Weight Concept inner dash insulator found in the Peugeot 208, which garnered Faurecia an innovation award from PSA Peugeot-Citroën in 2012.
