In an interview for the Agerpres news agency, Siemens Romania CEO George Costache pointed out that the German company developed its investment activity in 2015, especially in R&D centres in Romania, particularly in Transylvania.
“Our objective is for the number of employees at the IT centre in Cluj-Napoca to surpass 200 by 2017. Also last year, we started expanding the production activity in Romania, and in 2016 we will finalize this investment which entails the relocation and expansion of one of the three plants we have in Sibiu,” Costache pointed out.
At this moment, Siemens owns four plants in Sibiu and Buzias, plants that produce systems and components for industrial automations and applications, alongside four R&D centres in the IT and energy domains, centres located in Bucharest, Brasov and Cluj-Napoca.
Likewise, 2015 also marked an important threshold in what concerns the number of young people involved in the company’s education and development programmes. An internship programme for over 250 students was completed in Bucharest and, overall, approximately 1,100 young people have been trained in the last 10 years through internship stages and programmes.
