Today, the Coventry location employs around 140 people.
Adient is proud to back Coventry’s successful bid to be UK City of Culture 2021. As a major player in the automotive sector, an important employer in the West Midlands region and an innovative company, Adient, of course, wanted to support the bid. It is a great boost for the city to be 2021 UK City of Culture and show the world the outward looking approach of the city.
