Michigan Ag Connection - 10/11/2018

Faurecia team members answered the call to make a difference in their communities across North America by exceeding the monetary and volunteering goals set for this year's Faurecia Unites with Employees for Local Service (FUELS) Food Drive.

During the 9th annual campaign, Faurecia and its team members surpassed their food goal by donating more than 1,188,000 meals to community food banks. Since the annual campaign kicked off in 2010, Faurecia teams have donated more than 7.6 million meals to their community food banks.

At Faurecia, we believe in spanning the full spectrum of community development, from opening wallets to lending hands. Team members from all 44 Faurecia sites across Mexico, Canada and the United States also came together to invest 4,160 hours in their local communities during September. Faurecia is proud to evolve the FUELS program to better meet the needs of local communities by further growing the volunteer component of its annual campaign.

"Faurecia has a longstanding tradition of investing in the communities where we operate," said Kevin Lammers, president of Faurecia U.S.A. Holdings, Inc. "As a company, we believe that acting responsibly is key to ensuring the sustainable development of our community ecosystems for future generations. We have a responsibility to have a positive impact on society."

The annual FUELS Food Drive is a signature program in Faurecia's North America community outreach. Faurecia seeks to support non-profit organizations doing important work in our communities in a number of ways including: encouraging team members to volunteer, using skills-based volunteerism to drive impact, providing financial support for team-driven projects, and providing sponsorships and donations to local events and organizations. Faurecia supports work in several different areas including STEM education, youth and career development, ensuring access to basic needs, and promoting environmental sustainability.

Founded in 1997, Faurecia has grown to become a major player in the global automotive industry. With 290 sites including 30 R&D centers and 109,000 employees in 35 countries, Faurecia is now a global leader in its three areas of business: automotive seating, interior systems and clean mobility. Faurecia has focused its technology strategy on providing solutions for smart life on board and sustainable mobility. In 2017, the Group posted total sales of 20.2 billion and value-added sales of 17.0 billion. Faurecia is listed on the Euronext Paris stock exchange and is a component of the CAC Next 20 index. With North American headquarters based in Auburn Hills, Michigan, Faurecia had sales of $5.3 billion in 2017 and employed approximately 20,000 people at 50 locations in Canada, the United States, and Mexico.
