Airbus Helicopters completed a HUF 25 billion parts factory in Gyula (215 km southeast of Budapest), according to economic news portal portfolio.hu.
Airbus Helicopters CEO Bruno Even acknowledged the support of the Hungarian government and the municipal council in the endeavor. He said the new plant would ensure Airbus Helicopters a high degree of autonomy, adding that the company had found a stable base of highly trained workers locally. He said 20 engineers had already been hired to work at the plant and are being trained in Germany and France. He added that the number would double by yearend.
István Lepsényi, the ministerial commissioner for establishing an aviation industry cluster for the defense industry, said the plant was the first step toward creating a foundation for Hungary's aviation industry. He noted the historical contribution of the Hungarian engineer Oszkár Asbóth as one of the pioneers of the development of the helicopter.
