Diehl launches HUF 3 bln expansion in Hungary
Germany's Diehl laid the cornerstone of a HUF 3 bln production hall at its aircraft parts base in Nyírbátor in northeastern Hungary on Friday, MTI reported.
Diehl vice president Wolfgang Weggen said the 5,550 sqm hall would be completed by the middle of next year, creating 280 jobs. Diehl will make parts for Airbus A350 and A380 aircraft in the hall. The plant currently makes cabin parts for Airbus 320s and A330s.
The general contractor for the project is Hungary's KÉSZ Építő. Diehl inaugurated the base in Nyírbátor in 2012. At present, 270 people work in the 3,330 sqm plant there. This year, it is expected to generate revenue of about €15 mln. But sales are set to climb over €30 mln when the expansion is completed, said Diehl Aircabin Hungary managing director Udo Bosler.
