Swedish spare parts producer Trelleborg Automotive Dej, with EUR 40 million assets on the local market, was granted EUR 5.4 million by the Romanian Government through the government aid scheme, to co-finance the investment meant to expand the production facilities in Dej, Cluj county, reports Mediafax. The Swedes own a production unit for anti-vibration mountings for cars in the industrial park Arc Parc in Dej. The investment, worth a total EUR 16 million, aims to build a production hall, to purchase equipment and to create 284 new jobs. Once the project is concluded, the company’s turnover will increase from its current EUR 40 million to over 100 million a year, and the company’s personnel will reach about 600 employees, according to a release of Cluj County Council. “(…) Considering that about 70 per cent of the company’s production goes on the international market, the project will also contribute to supporting Cluj exports,” said Horia Uioreanu, chairman of Cluj County Council. The council representatives added that the county and local economy will reap only benefits, with forecast payments in excess of EUR 2 million as taxes and social contributions. Trelleborg company officials have not commented on this investment project.
