Delphi to move parts production to Hungary
Delphi Corp., a U.S. car parts supplier, will relocate some of its production to Hungary from France next year to benefit from lower labor costs, Világgazdaság reported, citing a company executive.
The company will spend several million euros to move some manufacturing, including the production of electronic parts, to its two Hungarian plants in Balassagyarmat and Szombathely, Illés Szabó, human resources director of the Balassagyarmat plant, told the paper.
The relocation would create 80-100 jobs at the two units. Delphi is also planning to relocate manual production from the Hungarian units to Slovakia and Poland, Világgazdaság said.
