Automotive interior components supplier International Automotive Components (IAC) is continuing its aggressive global growth with the opening of its first South American plant in Itatiaia, Brazil. The new 4,500 square-meter (48,437 square-foot) facility is expected to employ approximately 40 to 50 people when production reaches full capacity. It assembles and delivers highly crafted cockpits to Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) do Brasil to support the production of the 2017 Discovery Sport and Range Rover Evoque premium sport utility vehicles (SUVs).

IAC Itatiaia assembles cockpit components provided by five of the company’s United Kingdom (UK) facilities, which are located in Halewood, Elmdon, Sunderland, Scunthorpe and Coleshill. The completed cockpits are delivered to the nearby JLR do Brasil in Itatiaia. "Our presence in Brazil allows us to be a reliable strategic partner to Jaguar Land Rover’s global expansion and successfully support the lean operations of this important customer,” said IAC Chief Operating Officer (COO) Brian Pour.
