Phillips opened a second production line for xenon headlamps at its Gluelampenwerk facility at Aachen, Germany.
The move completes a 50 million-investment program on the site. The second line adds 120 new jobs and brings total plant employees to 1,290.
GLW produces domestic halogen, high-performance halogen car lamps and xenon lamps. Demand for the intense "blue light" xenon lamp is rising steadily. Phillips is a supplier to most carmakers globally.
