FORT WAYNE -

A global automotive component manufacturer is planning to launch a new facility in Fort Wayne and add up to 144 jobs this year. Faurecia Clean Mobility, which has its North American headquarters in Columbus, says the new plant represents a $4 million investment.

Engineering and production jobs are set to open up toward the end of the year.

Faurecia Emissions Control Technologies USA LLC currently employs more than 1,800 in three Bartholomew County facilities. The new 137,000 square-foot production operation will be located near the Fort Wayne International Airport.

FCM North American President Dave DeGraaf says "Faurecia is proud to expand on our already significant presence in the state with this new facility and to provide new opportunities for local jobseekers. 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."

The company produces emission control, acoustic treatment, weight reduction and exhaust heat recovery solutions.

Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry says "I'm encouraged that the Fort Wayne Redevelopment Commission was able to partner with HBC Realty Corp. and The Hagerman Group to help facilitate Faurecia's new jobs and investment in Fort Wayne."

The Indiana Economic Development Corp. has offered FCM up to $950,000 in conditional tax credits and training grants. The city could also consider additional incentives.
