Today a major auto supplier will let the world know Detroit will soon become their new home.

The announcement comes as the city continues its renaissance and its comeback.

Adient is the leading automotive seating supplier in the world with more than 75,000 employees operating over 200 manufacturing and assembly plants across the globe.

This morning, the company is making it official: they are relocating their global headquarters here to Detroit.

The move isn't without controversy after the company recently became publicly traded after spin-off from Johnson Controls
The Forture 200 supplier will announce their location and provide more background on where they'll set their sights for a new home.

Adient is announcing their move with another automotive supplier - a metals company that will bring more than 260 jobs to the metro Detroit area.

Collectively the two companies will bring about more than $215-million in private money to the local economy.

The official announcement will be made later this morning by the CEO of Adient and Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan.
