Lear Corporation officially announces manufacturing project in Dolnoslaskie


Lear Corporation, a US supplier of automotive seating and electrical power management systems, has confirmed that it will build a factory of metal structures for car seats in Legnickie Pole (Dolnoslaskie voivodship), in the Legnica Special Economic Zone. The value of the project was not disclosed.

The new plant, the company’s fourth one in Poland, will supply components to Lear factories across Europe, including in the Czech Republic, France, Spain, Germany, and Great Britain. It will employ several hundred workers and is expected to reach full operating capacity in 2014. Lear will use a vacant factory building in Legnickie Pole abandoned in 2009 by Lenovo, the PC maker, which had planned to locate its first European plant there.

Lear Corporation employs about 100,000 people at 207 facilities in 35 countries worldwide. In Poland it has factories in Tychy (Slaskie), Jaroslaw and Mielec (both in Podkarpackie), which between them employ over 6,000 people.
