Johnson Controls plans to add 11 plants in China

PLYMOUTH, Mich. — Johnson Controls Inc.’s auto parts unit plans to open 11 manufacturing sites in China in the next few years to handle expected growth.

The company’s Automotive Experience unit, which makes seats, electronics, and interiors, now has 57 sites in China.

A local union leader said he did not expect the expansion in China to affect its two Toledo-area plants in any way.

Worldwide, the company has 168,000 employees in more than 1,300 locations.
