Delphi has recently announced that the full production of the new diesel plant in Iasi, Romania, has begun and the facility will “join” the Miroslava plant to become the production base in Central Europe to better serve its global customers.
According to Delphi, the company has invested over 155 million euros in production projects at the site and has hired over 2000 employees from Iasi and Miroslava in the new 36.500 square-meter facility which followed a brownfield investment in Tehnoton in 2008.
“We view Romania as a very attractive business environment for manufacturing high-tech components for the automotive industry and appreciate the support we have received from the Romanian authorities”, said the Delphi Diesel Systems president, John Fuerst. “Current activities are related to programs awarded by our customers which establish the plant as a core manufacturing base for the coming years”.
Delphi has Romanian operations ever since 1997 with over 12.000 employees at four facilities, where electrical / electronic distribution systems are being produced in Sannicolau Mare, Ineu and Moldova Noua, while the Miroslava / Iasi plant is producing diesel engine management components.
Delphi is a leading global supplier of electronics and technologies for automotive, commercial vehicle and other market segments, with manufacturing sites and customer support facilities in 30 countries.
