Recaro Automotive Seating Opens New North American Facility

Recaro Automotive Seating Opens New North American Facility

The advanced development and production facility will promote job growth in the region.

Performance car seating manufacturer Recaro Automotive has announced the grand opening of its new North American facility, Recaro Automotive HQ. Located in Clinton Township, Michigan, the official ribbon cutting ceremony for the facility took place on Oct. 6. Earlier this year, Recaro Automotive was acquired by Raven Acquisitions LLC, and the opening of this facility marks a new chapter in the company’s storied history.

The new, automotive facility will be responsible for OEM, commercial vehicle and aftermarket seats. Additionally, international shipments of seating materials and products will be processed through this specific plant moving forward. Recaro’s most recent product launch, the brand’s first-ever off-road seats, will soon begin production at Recaro Automotive HQ. These seats, known as the Pro Racer SPG XLORV and the CrossSportster ORV, will come to market by the end of 2020 for customer purchase. To support these endeavors, the Recaro Automotive HQ will create job opportunities for workers within the Detroit area.

“We are thrilled to announce the opening of our Recaro North American facility and a range of new job opportunities for individuals in the Michigan area,” said Emil Kreycik, Recaro’s president and CEO. “As we continue to present cutting-edge products, we’re excited to open this advanced U.S. hub for production and innovation. Through our seat offerings, we’re confident that we will continue to help our customers achieve peak performance and inspire a passion for driving.”

Recaro worked hand-in-hand with community leaders throughout the site selection and construction process. The official ribbon cutting, which featured a speech by Emil Kreycik and a product display, was attended by Bob Cannon, Clinton Township Supervisor and Jack Johns, project manager at Macomb County Department of Planning & Economic Development. Moving forward, private and socially distanced tours of the facility will be available by appointment for OEM customers and Recaro’s marketing partners.

Following the acquisition of Recaro Automotive Seating by Raven Acquisitions LLC, the company continues to focus on its core business – performance seats and ergonomic seats, as well as special applications. This new structure allows for shorter and faster decision-making processes with greater flexibility to better meet the requirements of the market, aftermarket, commercial and OEM customers.
