Dana (US) invests in new machinery and training in Flanders

Opportunities in the making! Metal company Dana Belgium is investing over EUR 9 million in new machinery and training over the next 18 months. The goal? To provide production and technological solutions to power vehicles and machines around the globe. Based in Bruges (Flanders), Dana Belgium is part of the American, publicly traded multinational Dana Incorporated – a Fortune 500 company that specializes in off-highway drive and motion technologies. 

Next-generation mobility

With more than 500 employees and 32,000 square meters of factory space at Dana's Bruges facility, Dana Belgium develops, manufactures and distributes power transmission and energy management solutions for today’s and tomorrow’s vehicles. The teams provide transmission solutions for construction, material handling and mining equipment and system integration and software solutions for conventional and electrified powertrains in those markets.

Our new EUR 9-million investment puts the spotlight on Dana's longstanding commitment to Bruges. It sends a clear message. We are building the future and shaping the next generation of mobility technology, not only as a manufacturing firm, but also as a technology center for mechatronics and electrification solutions.

Talent galore

Dana has had roots in Bruges since 1969. Merely two years after its establishment, the firm already employed over 270 people. Today, the Dana Technology Center in Bruges is a crucial part of Dana’s innovation network, which is spread across 9 countries and collectively employs over 2,200 of the world's leading engineers, technicians and scientists. This talented workforce develops pioneering innovations for the mobility sector and for industrial customers. 

The fact that we invest in our production facility in Bruges also means that we have opportunities for people who are interested in participating in the production of these state-of-the-art and high-tech transmissions.
