Magna opens new facility in Turkey

Magna International Inc. recently announced the expansion of its business in Eastern Europe with the inauguration of a new greenfield manufacturing plant in Kocaeli, Turkey. The facility is being shared by Magna's Exteriors and Interiors, Mirrors, and Closures operating units. Company executives were joined in a grand opening ceremony by local government officials as well as by representatives from customers such as Ford, Fiat and Renault.

At full capacity, the 10,300-square-meter, just-in-sequence manufacturing plant will employ about 200 people. The facility will primarily manufacture fascias and outside mirrors for the new Ford Transit. Its product range also includes carriers for front-end modules, running boards and engineered glass products.

Kocaeli is Magna´s second location in Turkey - the company´s Magna Seating unit established a just-in-sequence complete seat facility in Gölcük in 2003.
