Columbus, Indiana – Faurecia Clean Mobility (FCM), a global manufacturer of automotive emissions control systems, plans to open a new production facility in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

"Faurecia is proud to open this new facility and to provide new opportunities for local jobseekers," said Dave DeGraaf, president of FCM in North America. "We've had great success growing our business in Indiana due in large part to our ability to attract a highly motivated and skilled workforce and we are looking forward to continuing that progress with this new site."

Faurecia is making an initial investment of $4 million to begin operations in the 137,500ft2. The site will create more than 100 new jobs in the Fort Wayne area. The company, which currently employs approximately 1,800 Hoosiers at three locations in Columbus, plans to begin hiring for a variety of engineering and production positions in fall.

FCM is the global market leader for light and commercial vehicles, offering advanced solutions for emissions control as well as acoustic treatment, weight reduction and exhaust heat recovery. FCM recognizes the importance of meeting environmental standards and has responded to the public's growing concerns with a comprehensive product portfolio, including Catalytic converters, emissions control systems, mufflers, manifolds and complete exhaust systems.
