Automotive supplier Hella plans to hire 50 new lighting and electronics engineers for jobs in the U.S. before the end of 2006.
Hella recently received new business from General Motors and also has been chosen by Ford as a strategic supplier for exterior lighting. The company also is pursuing an aggressive growth strategy to double its global sales from $3.8 billion by 2012.
“Despite intense competition, layoffs and downsizing at some domestic auto manufacturers and suppliers, Hella is growing and we are hiring,” says Steve Williams, Hella’s human resources manager. “We will be hiring both experienced engineers and graduate students to join the current staff of 120 engineers at our North American headquarters in Plymouth.”
Hella is accepting resumes via the Internet at http://www.hella.com/jobsusa , or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org . No resumes will be accepted, nor will interviews be conducted at the company’s booth during the World Congress.
“Hella is a great place to work,” Williams adds. “We are a growing and stable company, yet still small enough to recognize and encourage individual accomplishments. We’re hiring people who can help us grow and provide our automotive customers with exceptional service.”
