Visteon started its history as a spin-off from Ford Motor Company that had just acquired Johnson Controls’s electronics business. Visteon has since managed to successfully transform its own business into a focused electronics supplier with leading market positions in Asia, Europe and North America. Currently, Visteon has about 11,000 employees around the world.
The company is one of the world’s largest cockpit electronics providers and the only one focused exclusively on cockpit electronics. Visteon designs, engineers and manufactures advanced electronics products and connected car solutions that deliver a rich, connected experience for drivers and passengers. Visteon supplies virtually all leading automakers, including BMW, Daimler, Ford, General Motors, Nissan and Hyundai.
Visteon Electronics Bulgaria is a technical center with more than 680 employees and an expertise in software, hardware and mechanics. The location is Visteon’s second largest development center and is currently focused on the design and development of over 30 projects for millions of cars in future mass production.
Following a significant growth in demand for its software services, Visteon is relocating its 700 employees in the Bulgarian capital of Sofia to a new 89,000 square foot state-of-the-art office space, with plans to further expand the facility and accommodate up to 150 additional employees.
"Automotive software development is the fastest-growing segment in the global automotive industry, driven by the evolution of connected cars and autonomous driving.
Visteon’s software operations in Sofia are at the core of this exciting evolution, providing infotainment, head-up displays and innovative solutions for the world’s leading automakers," states Markus Schupfner, Visteon chief technology officer.
