Visteon Corporation“s facilities in Europe and Mexico have won significant business to supply Renault with interiors products and climate control components. Since March 2001, Visteon has been manufacturing the instrument panel for Renault“s New Clio in the European market. The instrument panel incorporates a “seamless airbag design“ and is manufactured at Visteon“s facilities in Gondecourt, France, Medina de Rioseco, Spain, and in Villestellone, Italy. Until recently, both these facilities manufactured the instrument panel for the Clio“s previous model. Recently, Visteon“s Carplastic Plant, which is located in Monterrey, Mexico, began producing the instrument panel top for the Renault Scenic model. For the forthcoming Renault Clio in Mexico, Visteon will manufacture the instrument panel at the Carplastics facility and the air conditioner hoses the Queretaro facility in Mexico. Production of these components will start in November 2001. “This is a good example of how Visteon is able to service its customers globally. Visteon“s Monterrey facility has worked closely with its sister facilities in France and Spain to ensure a smooth transfer of production to Mexico. We are very proud to be able to support Renault in Europe and Mexico,” said Ricardo Ruiz, Visteon Account Manager for Renault-Nissan in Mexico.
