Faurecia To Buy Ford, ACH Interior Components Business

05/03/2012 | 08:53am US/Eastern

French auto parts maker Faurecia SA (>> FAURECIA) said Thursday it will buy an interior components business based in Michigan and operated by Ford Motor Co. (F) and Automotive Components Holdings LLC for an undisclosed amount.

Faurecia, which is 57.4% owned by car maker Peugeot Citroen SA (>> PEUGEOT), said the components business generated annual sales worth $1.1 billion. With the new acquisition, Ford becomes Faurecia's third-largest customer.

Faurecia said the deal won't have a significant impact on its debt and cash position.

Faurecia also said it will set up a joint venture with Rush Group Ltd. which will be called Detroit Manufacturing Systems, which will manufacture car interior components in a new factory in Detroit. Rush Group will control the new venture and will operate it, while Faurecia will hold a 45% stake.
