The automotive supplier Lear (Southfield, Michigan / USA) wants to convert three plants in the USA for the expected electromobility business. The company is spending USD 112 million (EUR 105 million) to convert and expand the Michigan plants in Independence Township, Traverse City and Sterling Heights.

According to CEO Ray Scott, parts and entire components for charging controls and battery systems will be manufactured there in the future – mostly made of plastics. The latter will be manufactured in particular at the Sterling Heights plant, which is said to receive most of the money. Lear has recently received several orders from General Motors in particular for their battery-electric “Ultium” vehicle platform, which will run until 2030.
