In 1914, Bertrand Faure opened his first workshop in Levallois-Perret, on the outskirts of Paris, manufacturing seats for trams and the Paris metro. Since then, Faurecia has grown to become a top ten global automotive supplier, working to shape the next generation of mobility at every turn.
Faurecia as we know it today was formed in 1997 with the takeover of Bertrand Faure by PSA-owned ECIA to create a global automotive player. In 2021, with the merger of PSA and FCA and the creation of Stellantis, a new chapter began in Faurecia’s history.
With the acquisition of a controlling interest in HELLA, Faurecia and HELLA have come together to form FORVIA - a global automotive supplier with an advanced technology portfolio and innovation capability. Aligned with key industry megatrends and fast-growing technology areas, FORVIA is uniquely placed to bring solutions for a safe, sustainable, advanced and customized mobility.
