The automotive seat supplier is moving seat assembly work from its Recaro plant in Auburn Hills to its Bridgewater Interiors joint venture plant in Detroit in January 2018.

It will begin decreasing operations in Auburn Hills in October and be closed by March 2018, according to a notice filed with the Michigan Workforce Development Agency.

Employees whose jobs are being eliminated will be offered comparable positions at the company’s Plymouth, Southfield or Detroit locations.

Adient, which was spun off from Milwaukee-based Johnson Controls in October, announced in 2016 plans to move its headquarters to the Marquette Building in downtown Detroit. The company said then that it intended to invest $97.5 million in the move that would consolidate corporate functions.
