Cleaning and hygienic products manufacturer Reckitt Benckiser will spend HUF 1.3 bln to expand its base in Tatabánya, northwestern Hungary, by installing new production lines in an area of 2,000 sqm, thereby creating 250 new jobs, managing director Cezary Romanski told Hungarian news agency MTI.

The company is scheduled to begin production of toilet disinfectants in the new plant in October and ramp up production to full capacity by Q1 of next year, he added. The expansion will boost the company’s revenue by 20% over last yearʼs HUF 30 bln, the director said.

Currently, Reckitt Benckiser employs 900 people at its base, which manufactures air fresheners, foot and leg care products, and household cleaners. This base is the companyʼs second largest in Europe in terms of headcount and the fifth largest in terms of output.
