Budapest welcomes Eaton shared services center
American power management company Eaton opened a shared services center in Budapest, Eaton regional chief Kurt McMaken and state secretary for external economy Levente Magyar announced today at a press conference, according to Hungarian news agency MTI.
McMaken said that the company chose Hungary as the site of the service center due to the local pool of talented and multi-lingual labor.
The center is expected to reach a headcount of more than 150 employees by the end of 2016, and a total of 500 employees across the country. The regional chief noted that headcount at the service center could rise by another 100 in time.
The company currently employs a 90-member sales staff in the capital and 250 people at a unit in Győr, northwestern Hungary, that turns out circuit protection devices.
