All workers laid off at porcelain maker Hollóházi
All 200 workers of state-owned Hollóházi Porcelán Manufaktúra were laid off on Wednesday, regional news portal BorsodOnline reported on Wednesday.
Hollóháza mayor Sándor Koleszár said a company to start operating at Hollóházi’s production base in September would take over 50 of those people laid off.
The Hungarian National Asset Management Company (MNV) has decided to wind up the company without establishing a legal successor, the portal said.
Hollóházi became insolvent in the spring, Econews reported earlier. At the time, MNV had plans to transfer some of the company's activities to a nonprofit.
