German seat manufacturer Recaro has expanded its customer services division and plans to grow staff numbers at its headquarters in Schwäbisch Hall.

The company opened a 4,000m² (43,000ft²) facility next to its existing site, which includes increased warehouse volume, a logistics and distribution centre, production and office space.

Managing director Andreas Lindemann says that the extension was necessary as the firm had grown over past years and would continue to do so in future.

He adds that this would include more custom in the spare part business.

The company employs around 80 staff members in the customer services division. Its total staff is to grow by approximately 100 jobs this year.

Recaro currently employs around 1,500 staff members across all facilities, according to its website.
