Along the years, the automotive industry has been under constant scrutiny from its customers, suppliers and relevant authorities and forced to reshape due to either global economic clogs or increasing regulatory requirements targeting fuel and safety related aspects, in particular. Also, the relentless innovation activity by the technologies that supply it complete the picture. The domestic market, with its traditional brands and the international giants expanding their businesses to seek increased productivity and cost-efficiency, witnessed the ups and downs of the sector, while securing a poll-position as an industry of significant importance to the Romanian economy.
