Hella expands electronics plant in Lithuania
The automotive supplier Hella is continuing to expand its electronics plant in Lithuania. The plant in the Kaunas Free Economic Zone started production of various electronic components in August 2018. At present, sensors and actuators as well as lighting electronics components are manufactured at the location and more than 180 employees are working there.

In view of the further increase in demand, the Lithuanian site is to be continuously expanded over the next few years. Hella is therefore investing a medium double-digit million euro amount in the long-term expansion of production capacities. As a result of the expansion, the number of employees is to be increased to up to 430. In the first phase, the building area of the plant will initially be increased to a total of 22,000 square metres. In addition to new production and office space, this will also include a laboratory facility covering around 1,000 square metres. Series production of further electronic components, for example in the field of energy management, is also planned for summer 2021.

"In the last two years, the location in Lithuania has developed into an important pillar in our global production network," says Hella CEO Dr. Rolf Breidenbach. "Further investments will not only underline the importance of the location, but also lay the foundation for further growth in the electronics sector".
