New exhaust technology plant in Romania
The Eberspächer group of companies is investing in a new exhaust technology plant in Romania. The strong growth of the Exhaust Technology Division as a result of newly won orders requires the expansion of production capacity. The new site is being built in Oradea/Bihor on an area of around 11 hectares. Both the Production and Logistics Departments as well as an office complex will be housed in a building around 27,500 square meters in size. Exhaust technology components for European car makers will be produced in Oradea starting in November 2016. Over the course of the year the Esslingen automotive manufacturer will create up to 150 jobs on the site. Annual production capacity of 1.5 million exhaust components as well as up to 5 million bent pipes is planned by 2020. The excellent logistics link with main transport routes to European customers was the decisive factor when it came to locating in Oradea. Via this new site Eberspächer continues to focus its strategic global production in relevant eastern European markets as well as pursue its worldwide growth trajectory.
Eberspaecher EasyFan: new control unit for pre-heaters

EasyFan automatically controls the valve and fan settings, thus enhancing not only ease of use but also ensuring the optimum efficiency of the pre-heater. As usual, Eberspaecher provides its service partners with vehicle-specific installation kits along with the preprogrammed control unit. The EasyFan vent and fan control unit will be available for retrofitting in a wide range of vehicle makes and models.
