Lighting components supplier H.A. Automotive Systems Inc., plans to establish a headquarters, manufacturing and r&d facility in suburban Detroit to handle new orders from North American automakers.

Two China-based automotive suppliers are expanding in the United States.

H.A. Automotive is the North American subsidiary of Shanghai Changhui Industry Development Co.

The company will invest $29 million (179 million yuan) and create 268 new jobs, according to a statement from the Michigan Economic Development Corp.

Yanfeng USA Automotive Trim Systems Inc. plans to expand its factory in Harrison Township, Mich., creating 519 new jobs with an investment up to $56 million.

Yanfeng purchased the Harrison Township facility in 2011 and has won orders to produce center consoles, door panels and instrument panels.

YanFeng, which is a subsidiary of Shanghai's Yanfeng Visteon Automotive Trim System Co., also has U.S. facilities in Warren, Mich., and Riverside, Mo.

Yanfeng recently signed an agreement to form a global interior auto supplier with Johnson Controls Inc., with Yanfeng set to control 70 percent of the company. The joint venture is expected to launch in 2015.
