Faurecia has received the “Industry of future showcase” label from the French “Industry of Future Alliance”.
The Caligny plant launched a three-part transformation initiative in 2016 including:
- Involving employees in the site's digital transformation, developing their skills through measures such as a training program on competencies, methods and management;
- Developing a strong regional ecosystem through partnerships with startups, schools and local mid-sized companies;
- Stepping up the digital transformation at the site through the use of predictive maintenance solutions and collaborative robots.
The transformation project is key to enhancing operational excellence and developing innovation in the region. It will help to secure the long-term future of the Caligny site.
Olivier Zanusso, Faurecia Caligny site manager: “The Industry of Future Showcase label acknowledges the efforts of all employees to step up the digital transformation and modernization of our site. It underscores our site's innovative positioning and focus on the future. We are very proud to rank among the 40 most modern manufacturing sites in France.”
With more than 1,100 employees, Faurecia Caligny includes a state-of-the-art manufacturing site and tech center specializing in automotive seat mechanisms, in which Faurecia is a world leader.
