ROMANIA: Fujikura to double output, personnel
Japanese firm Fujikura Automotive, an electronics manufacturer for cars, said it would double production and personnel in its plant in Cluj, northwestern Romania, in 2011.
Following a new contract with carmaker Volkswagen, the Japanese group will hire 630 people more, doubling its staff in its Transylvanian factory.
"We are going to create new jobs as a new project was attributed to the plant in Cluj," the group's vice-president Ignacio Ibarra told AFP after talks with local authorities.
Fujikura Automotive bought the plant in 2008 from the Spanish company ACE.
