Visteon announced that it will relocate its 700 employees in Bulgarian capital Sofia to a brand new 89,000-square foot  state-of-the-art workspace. The company plans on additionally expanding the facility in order to accommodate up to 150 more employees, coming as a result of the significant growth in demand for its software services.
