With almost EUR 2.8 billion invested by the end of 2017 and 17,700 employees in the Romanian facilities, The Renault Group – one of the most significant players worldwide, is the country’s largest company and exporter.


Groupe Renault is the only company in Romania which incorporates all activities specific for a car manufacturer, something which has generated high economic performance and a wide range of job offers in different fields: market studies, design, engineering, manufacturing and supply chain, sales, business services and financing: Dacia plant in Mioveni (Plant Vehicles, Mechanical Plant and Chassis Division logistics, including the logistics center Alliance International Logistic Network), Moulds Dacia (Pitesti), Renault Design Central Europe (design center), and Renault Credit International and Renault Technologie Roumanie (encompassing Titu Technical Center – the  largest Renault engineering center outside France).

Spread over an 2,900,000 sqm area the industrial platform from Mioveni is currently producing three automobile models – Logan Sedan and Logan MCV, Sandero and Duster SUV, respecting the same standards of quality and efficiency as all Renault’s factories in Western Europe.

Last year, the turnover figure for Groupe Renault Romania went beyond the threshold of 5 bn. euros. At the core of the Global Access range (the range to which the Dacia models manufactured in Mioveni belong), the Groupe is leader on the local market with the Dacia and Renault brands. The employees of the Groupe Renault Romania innovate with respect to products and best practices and are recognized for their professionalism.

Daimler AG is one of the biggest manufacturer of premium auto vehicles in the world.
With more than 3,000 employees in its Romanian subsidiaries, Star Assembly and Star Transmission, Daimler was one of the first Romanian companies to offer a dual education system model, following the German state of Baden-Wuerttemberg.


Since 2016, Star Assembly is assembling the nine speed 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission for Mercedes-Benz at Sebeș plant, through a EUR 300 million investment, producing 210,000 units per year.

Star Transmission’s facilities in Sebeș and Cugir are important pillars of the global power-train production network at Mercedes-Benz Cars. The plant in Sebeș assembles dual-clutch transmissions and converter automatic transmissions, while the plant in Cugir manufactures gears, shafts, and mechanical components for engines, transmissions and steering systems. Established in 2001, the Cugir facility includes a technology center along with a prototype assembly unit and a training facility.

The decision on the new plant is a very rational process in which we compare all aspects of education level, availability of labor force, logistics, infrastructure, how easy it is to do business in that country, distance to suppliers and customers. Romania can be a solution. In Romania we have a positive experience due to the gearbox factory, which is very good. It’s an advantage for Romania that we have a factory for gearboxes there.

– Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of Daimler AG Board of Management
