Faurecia, manufacturer of exhaust systems for BMW, Daimler and Volkswagen plants across North America, recently announced that it will close its Spartanburg plant.
“Essentially what we are doing is restructuring our manufacturing resources,” said Tony Sapienza, spokesman for Faurecia. He said the company will try to relocate as many of the 150 employees impacted by the closure as possible. The company is also going to work with state and local officials to help the remaining employees find other jobs.
According to Sapienza, production ends for the Spartanburg plant in November with the official closure in December. The Spartanburg location was opened in 2010. Faurecia intends to keep its plant in Fountain Inn open.
