Bosch to launch automotive sensor production in Romania
By the end of 2013, roughly 300 new jobs will be created in new premises covering some 21,000 square meters. By 2020, the number of associates manufacturing wheel-speed and crankshaft sensors is expected to rise to roughly 1,000.
The new manufacturing facility will be assigned to Bosch's Chassis Systems Control division, which develops and manufactures components and systems for active and passive automotive safety as well as driver assistance systems. The division has more than 35 manufacturing sites around the world and employs about 16,000 workers.
Up to now, Bosch's industrial automation arm Bosch Rexroth has manufactured linear-motion technology at the Blaj location for use in mechanical engineering. The manufacturing site has existed since 2007. Some 580 associates are currently employed in Blaj. The Bosch Group runs two further locations in Romania.
