thyssenkrupp launched a new damper plant

The German manufacturer of damper systems thyssenkrupp opened a new automotive components plant in Sibiu, Romania. The new production facility will manufacture dampers for global customers in the automotive industry including Daimler, Jaguar Land Rover and Porsche. The investment is worth around 60 million euros. It has created more than 350 new jobs at the Romanian location which now employs around 1000 people.

“This is an investment not only in the targeted expansion of our European production network but also in newly obtained customer projects and new technologies.

In Sibiu we will manufacture dampers to the highest technical standards for installation in our customers’ premium models. At the same time we are in the process of industrializing an entirely new generation of dampers for highly automated intelligent chassis systems”, Dr. Karsten Kroos, CEO of thyssenkrupp’s automotive division, said.
The new plant is an extension to the existing production site in Sibiu where the company has been operating since 1996.
