At the inauguration ceremony, Patrick Koller said “Today’s event marks an important milestone in Faurecia’s history in South Korea which began in 2003.

Especially, we value very much our relationship with HKMC which we consider as a strategic customer.”

We now have three production facilities as well as this new center and employ almost one thousand people. Through the development of advanced technologies for the Korean market, such as the Exhaust Heat Recovery System recently launched on the Hyundai Ioniq, Faurecia will continue to grow and expects to reach almost half a billion euros of sales in 2020.”
After the dedication ceremony, Faurecia Korea, 15 business partners and Gyeonggi-do Province signed an agreement for an ethically cooperative relationship.
