Please provide a list of the top Automotive Parts companies in Romania that provide sun-shade parts to European OEMs. Please do provide as many relevant company names as possible. Thanks!
Although the interest for sun shades in Romania is large, after extensive research, I was only able to find three automotive parts companies that produce sun shades in Romania for other European OEMs. While there are many other automotive companies in Romania, these three companies have been mentioned to produce sun shades. Below you will find a breakdown of each company that has been mentioned to produce sun shades, as well as who they produce automotive parts for.
Romanian Automotive Market
The market for automotive parts in Romania is large and ever-growing. Since 2004, this industry has seen steady growth patterns of increased labor forces. However, many of these companies outsource their products from other nations, which is resulting in a decrease of locally-produced products. Although the production has moved elsewhere, the production of auto parts in Romania has grown from €7.6 billion in 2011 to €12.6 billion in 2014. This shows that the automotive market is booming, even though production is taking place in other countries. For this reason, there were not many automotive companies located in Romania that were still producing sun shades on their own. The companies that do still have their own sun shades have been depicted below.
Kautex is a global automotive company that has an office in Craiova, Romania. As one of the top 100 automotive companies in the world, Kautex focuses on producing car machinery and software products. While there is no direct link to their product of sun shades on their website, it has been stated multiple times by the public that the company does produce sun shades.
UAMT S.A. Oradea
UAMT has been around for over 50 years, producing parts like mirrors, sun screens, and wipers for Dacia Automotive in Romania. They may or may not still be producing sun screens, as there is no link to the product on their personal website.
BOS GmbH & Co. KG
According to the Central European Auto Industry, BOS still produces sun shade products for their customers, to this day. There is information available on their website about their "Sun Protection System," but no specific details are listed.
There are many automotive parts that produce sun shades for other OEMs, but very few of them originate in Romania. BOS was the only company that provided information relating to their sunshades on their website, but Kautex and UAMT have been mentioned to still be producing sun shades as well. It was extremely difficult to find information regarding automotive companies in Romania that produce their own sun shades. It is likely that the country has stopped producing these products on their own altogether, and instead, have begun to source them from other companies throughout the world.
