Hella will be hiring engineers and other "staff professionals" in North America through the third quarter of this year to meet a growing demand for automotive electronic components. The global supplier of electronics and lighting products expects to fill more than 20 positions at its facilities in Plymouth, MI, and Flora, IL, according to Dr. Martin Fischer, President of Hella Electronics and the Hella Corporate Center USA in Plymouth. The company plans to hire additional employees later this year as well. Fischer said the company expects to grow its electronics business in the NAFTA trade region at an annual rate of 20% or more to keep pace with increased vehicle sales, consumer interest in more fuel-efficient vehicles, and demand for new radar-based driver-assistance systems. The company foresees products based on 24-GHz radar technology sparking additional sales for the company. Products include those that help drivers maintain a safe distance between vehicles, assist with lane changes, and provide blind-spot and rear cross-traffic alerts.
