The German group Siemens has opened on Tuesday in Cluj-Napoca a regional centre for software research and development, currently employing 50, but the number of employees is expected to reach 210 in two years.

This year 50 people will be employed at the IT centre in Brasov and the factory in Sibiu will be expanded.

The new Siemens office in Cluj occupies the entire B building of the Liberty Technology Park Cluj, having an area of 3,000 square meters. The building was modernized and transformed, and now it is the centre for Siemens IT projects, under the brand Evosoft. The centre opened in Transylvania is the fourth opened by Siemens under this brand in the region (there are three others in Germany, Hungary and Turkey).

“210 employees will be working here by the end of 2017 and I believe even more are in store,” says George Costache, CEO Siemens Romania, adding that until the end of the year the target is 120 employees.
