Delphi expands in Romania

Delphi Automotive is to open a new manufacturing facility at Moldova Noua, in the southwest region of Romania. The site will produce wiring harness modules for vehicle manufacturers across Europe and will work closely with other Delphi facilities in the country to ensure efficiency and flexibility for its customers. Employment at the new plant could potentially approach 1,000 by the end of the year.

“Our quality and cutting-edge technology are driving significant growth in our European business as we work with automakers to help them manage the increasingly complex electrical and electronic requirements of vehicles,” said Gerhard Mertes, global sales director, Delphi Electrical/Electronic Architecture. “This new plant will allow us to build on the expertise and capital investment we’ve made at our other plants in Romania in order to support our customers’ increasing production volumes.”

On April 4 of this year, 1,400 square meters of the Moldova Noua facility was opened as part of the first phase of development. During this phase, the manufacturing team validated processes and gained valuable production experience. An additional 2,400 square meters of the facility will be opened in September 2011.

Delphi currently operates three plants in Romania, employing more than 10,000 people at facilities that manufacture wiring harnesses and components for high-precision diesel common rail systems.
