Delphi starts full production at new diesel plant in Romania

ABR Staff Writer Published 09 November 2011

Delphi Automotive has started full production at the new diesel plant in Miroslava, Iasi, Romania, to become the production base in Central Europe to better serve its global customers.

The company said that it has invested over EUR155m in production projects at the site and has hired over 2000 employees from Iasi and Miroslava in the new 36,500 sq m facility which followed a brownfield investment in Tehnoton in 2008.

The Miroslava plant produces high-precision diesel fuel injection components, mainly pumps and injectors, for common rail systems serving customers around the world.

The latest product in the plant production range is the combined valve adaptor (CVA) that includes the control valve of the injector.

In 2009, the company started the expansion in production areas in Miroslava which became operational in September the same year.

The group now operates sites dedicated to diesel engine management system activities, with a presence in France, Spain, the UK, Romania, Hungary, Turkey, Mexico, Brazil, India, Singapore and Korea.

Delphi Diesel Systems Romania plant manager John Hutson said the company continues to provide extensive training to grow highly qualified local candidates to work on high-end technology that requires machining to a micron level that is 150 times smaller than a human hair.

"This expertise supports the manufacturing of fuel injection system solutions being produced and further developed to meet carmakers' needs to comply with increasingly stringent market regulations," Hutson said.
