Dacia set to hire 1,000 people for engineering division in 2018
The new CEO of Dacia Automobile Renault Romania Antoine Doucerain will assume his new role starting May 1 and has announced some of the plans of the automaker.
“It is really important for Dacia to keep the DNA of the company”, said Doucerain in a press conference held together with the former CEO Yves Caracatzanis. “This means to keep producing attractive cars with good quality and best prices,” says Doucerain explaining that this is a competitive advantage.
Caracatzanis, who spent two years as head of the Romanian division, admitted that his mandate was too short, but Dacia had a constant performance. “It was important to keep the good results and we succeeded in doing that as we keep getting record results. We also developed the engineering department, that of services, we modernized the factory. In 2018 we will recruit 1,000 more people, mostly for the engineering division”, said Caracatzanis. He pointed out that Renault has invested 2.8 billion Euro in Romania so far.
Among elements that an investor considers when investing in a country mentioned by Caracatzanis are competitiveness, infrastructure, predictability and stability. This are the things that Romania must improve to remain attractive for foreign investors.
Antoine Doucerain will report to Nicolas Maure, Director of Groupe Renault operations for the Eurasia Region, which includes Romania.
