Johnson Controls opens two Serbia plants to support Fiat 500L production

Auto parts manufacturer Johnson Controls has opened a new seat plant in Kragujevac, Serbia, to supply Fiat’s nearby facility with seats for the 500L compact MPV.

The new 70,000-square-foot plant will manufacture complete seats in a just-in-time (JIT) system. Johnson Controls also supplies complete interiors – including door panels, instrument panels, floor consoles and rear quarter panels – made within Fiat’s existing 205,000-square-foot facility in Kragujevac through a joint venture with PCMA, a division of Magneti Marelli S.p.A.

“We are proud to support our customer Fiat in developing and growing its business in Serbia. With our products, we contribute to the success of the 500L”, said Marzio Raveggi, vice president and general manager of Johnson Controls’ Fiat business unit during the inauguration of the two plants.

Johnson Controls’ new seating plant is located in the Grosnica Supplier Park near the city of Kragujevac. The interiors plant, a joint venture between Johnson Controls and Magneti Marelli, is located within the Fiat Automobiles Serbia (FAS) facility. Both plants supply the FAS facility in Kragujevac, where the 500L compact MPV is assembled.

“Johnson Controls, Magneti Marelli and Fiat will all benefit from this joint venture,” said Raveggi. Johnson Controls has been a long-time supplier to Fiat and is a two-time winner of the automaker´s Qualitas Award, which recognizes achievements in the area of quality.
