Bosch to launch automotive sensor production in Romania Automotive supplier Bosch Group plans to manufacture wheel-speed and crankshaft sensors for the automotive industry in its Plant in Blaj, Romania. The company plans to invest some 43 million euros up to the end of 2013 in a plant extension and new manufacturing equipment. Construction will start in the spring of 2012.

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.
