The car parts plant in Satu Mare, controlled by Romanian subsidiary of German automotive component supplier Dräxlmaier, has a new interim director as of May 17, after former GM Sorin Ghita resigned, the company announced on Friday.
The unit is the largest of the five of the German group in Romania, its basic activity being the production of electrical systems.
The coordinator of the Group’s Electric Systems Division in Europe, Josef Kaufmann, was appointed interim director at the Satu Mare plant.
“The former GM, Sorin Ghita, chose to accept new challenges in his professional career and to continue his activity outside the company,” the release reads.
This comes after the German premium car parts manufacturer Dräxlmaier announced in March that will fire 800 people from its oldest factory owned in Romania, at Pitesti, but instead it will invest EUR 150 million in expanding two production units.
