Yanfeng Automotive Interiors Strengthens Presence in Eastern Europe
Yanfeng Automotive Interiors (YFAI), global supplier of instrument panels and cockpit systems, door panels, floor consoles and overhead consoles, will establish a new manufacturing site in Planá nad Luznici, Czech Republic. Construction work on the new plant will start soon. Operational start is planned by early 2018. The company plans to create about 300 new jobs in the region. Open positions for the new plant in Planá are posted on the company's website.
“With our new location in South Bohemia, we are responding to market demand and our customers’ increasing presence in Eastern Europe,” said Jochen Heier, vice president and general manager, Europe & South Africa at Yanfeng Automotive Interiors. On around 20,000 m2 production area the company will manufacture interior components, including instrument panels and door panels, for future models of different customers. The plant will be set up to adapt flexibly to the capacity requirements of YFAI and its customers and enable the company to respond to continued growth in the automotive market.
The new plant in the South Bohemian region is not YFAI’s first presence in the Czech Republic; the company already operates a plant in Zatec, as well as other sites in Slovakia and Hungary in Eastern Europe. With the new plant in Planá YFAI will reinforce its production network in the Eastern European growth markets, while maintaining a strong and dedicated presence in Western Europe.
