Béres inaugurates HUF 500 mln expansion
Hungarian pharmaceutical company Béres inaugurated a HUF 500 mln expansion in Szolnok yesterday. Prime Minister Viktor Orbán gave a speech at the ceremony in his acknowledgement of the success of the family business that started with a staff of ten and grew into an enterprise, which today employs approximately 300 employees.
Chairman József Béres, whose father invented the company's flagship product, the natural immune booster Béres Drops, in 1972, said the company had been established 25 years ago with the purpose of having the preparation recognized as a medicine.
In 2000, it was classified as such and became a leader on the market for immune boosters, he added. The Prime Minsiter said he had spoken with company officials about the possible construction of another plant, about the chance of the state transferring 300 hectares of land for an expansion of the Szolnok industrial park and the construction of a motorway or major road, with budget money coming from Szolnok and the capital, by the end of the government's term.
