Change of leadership for Adient in Europe

Automotive seating supplier Adient has appointed Ingo Fleischer as its new head of operational business in Europe, effective immediately. The company has 50 production plants and approximately 21,000 employees in the wider region.

Mr Fleischer is now responsible for managing the business and production processes for complete seats, foam and trim in one of Adient’s most important global markets. The company has said he will focus on increasing efficiency and productivity within the region’s production network and in particular on building strong customer relationships with leading automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).

Unitl now, Mr Fleischer, who has been with the company (which was part of Johnson Controls until 2016) since 1997, was the president of Adient’s specialty seating business, which gave him a lead role in the company’s recent move into seating solutions for commercial aircraft and commercial vehicles. He was instrumental in the founding of Adient Aerospace, a joint venture with Boeing.

Automotive remains the most important part of Adient’s business, of course. It has 85,000 employees operating 238 manufacturing and assembly plants in 34 countries worldwide. It produces automotive seating for all vehicle classes and all major OEMs and it currently produces seating for more than 25 million vehicles every year.
