Continental celebrates 20th anniversary in Hungary
The Hungarian plant of German automotive manufacturer Continental celebrated its twentieth anniversary in Makó Hungary last month, according to an announcement issued by the company yesterday.
The plant was opened in 1995 as a subsidiary of Phoenix AG, in place of the former Taurus tire factory, and initially employed only 13 people, the announcement says. Today, the plantʼs headcount exceeds 2,500, and is the largest employer in the region.
The Continental plant in Vác began operations in 1999, and merged with the Makó plant in 2006. Since 2008, the two plants have operated under the aegis of ContiTech Fluid Automotive Hungária Kft., with an approximate headcount of 3,600.
