While French car manufacturer Groupe PSA is Faurecia's controlling shareholder, holding around 57.4% stake, Faurecia is run as an independent company.[2]

Faurecia's customers include the Volkswagen group, PSA Peugeot Citroën, Renault-Nissan, Ford, General Motors, BMW, Daimler, Fiat/Chrysler, Toyota, Hyundai-Kia, Jaguar Land Rover and BYD among others. Faurecia employs 8,300 engineers and technicians. The company operates over 300 production sites and 35 R&D centres in 37 countries worldwide, with 403 patents filed in 2017. About half of these sites are manufacturing plants operating on the just-in-time principle. Faurecia joined the United Nations Global Compact in 2004.

The company was at the core of a bribery scandal in 2006 which led to the resignation and legal conviction of it‘s then CEO Pierre Lévi.[3]


Faurecia was formed in 1998 by two automotive component suppliers, Bertrand Faure and ECIA.[4]
