The 2015 Volkswagen Golf is set to roll into showrooms this spring equipped with Faurecia technology for seating, door panels, and front-end modules.

Faurecia says it is producing the carrier for the new Golf model’s front-end module at its Puebla, Mexico, accessories facility, near the plant in Puebla where Volkswagen assembles the Golf. The carrier signifies the first production contract for the Faurecia business group in Mexico.

According to Faurecia, its front-end carrier provides the support system for the head lamps, engine cooling system and other critical components in the front end of the Golf. The carrier plays a vital role in helping ensure the fit and finish of the exterior of the vehicle as well as the proper function of the vehicle’s driver assistance systems.

In Puebla, Faurecia has also installed a new injection-moulding press to be used by both the interiors and exteriors groups in manufacturing systems for the Golf. Faurecia Interior Systems in Puebla supplies the new Golf model’s door panels, which include inserts composed of 50 percent polypropylene and 50 percent flax fibres. Faurecia’s natural fibre polypropylene (NFPP) compression technology enables reduced cycle times through a one-step compression and covering process.
