Premium Aerotec GmbH recently began construction of a new plant in Ghimbav/Brasov County, Romania, for processing aircraft components. Operations are expected to begin this year and be completed by the end of 2011. A second building section is also planned. In the first stage, about 300 jobs will be created, with the number expected to gradually increase. The plant’s location was chosen for the expertise available in the area, especially in the field of metalworking. Orders from the factory will mainly be generated out of sub-suppliers’ orders for existing aircraft programs. The factory will be integrated into the Premium Aerotec group, adding to German production sites in Augsburg, Bremen, Nordenham, and Varel.
