Compagnie Generale des Etablissements Michelin (ML.FR) and Faurecia SA (EO.FR) plan to merge their hydrogen fuel-cell operations into a joint venture, the two automotive suppliers said Monday.

The new company will develop, produce and market fuel-cell systems for the automotive sector and be equally owned by Michelin and Faurecia. The business will get its name from Michelin's fuel-cell maker Symbio, which will be incorporated, the two French companies said.

Faurecia Chief Executive Patrick Koller said the move will accelerate the market launch of fuel-cell products.

"Our joint ambition is to create a center of excellence for hydrogen mobility in France through the gradual combination of our activities," he said.

This deal is subject to the approval of the relevant authorities.
