The Japan-based company ROKI specializing in automotive filters manufacturing will occupy 5,500 sqm unit in Romanian CTPark Arad. The space will include logistics and offices/social areas. This project is the first in Europe as a production facility for the group and is meant to supply ROKI’s customers/OEMs mainly in the European region.
The production facility, leased for five years with extension options, will employ 50 people in phase I, increasing to 100 in 2019. Fit-out will be finalized by end of 2017 and will start the mass production from 2018. Park benefits include excellent infrastructure and accessibility, lower costs and available skilled labor.
