Southfield, Michigan-based Lear Corporation yesterday announced plans to open a connection systems plant in Morocco to manufacture injection molded parts and engineered plastics for automakers, suppliers and Lear's E-Systems and Seating business units. The plant should be online by Q3 2023.
Lear is repurposing a 5,300 square-meter facility in Tangier, from seat assembly to component production. Seating employees have been transferred to other company facilities in the area, and the new operations will create approximately 150 new jobs.
The company now has more than 19,000 employees across 17 sites in Morocco.
