Global automotive supplier Yanfeng has completed construction of a new manufacturing site in Kragujevac/Serbia. The plant will launch production by summer 2022. The company plans to create about 500 new jobs over the next few years.
Yanfeng Automotive Interiors (Europe), Neuss/Germany, will manufacture seat components for various customers in a production area of approx. 20,000 m². The plant will be set up to flexibly adapt to changing capacity requirements and enable the company to provide complete seats in Europe.
The new plant is Yanfeng’s second location in Serbia. Since 2019, the company has operated an interior component plant in Kragujevac.

With the new plant in Serbia, Yanfeng will also reinforce its presence in the Eastern European growth markets, while maintaining a strong and dedicated presence in Western Europe.
