GE to start LED production in Hungary by year-end
GE Lighting will start production of LED lights at its plant in Nagykanizsa this quarter, GE regional chairman-CEO Phil Marshall said on Friday.
Parts for the LED lights will come from GE's plant in nearby Zalaegerszeg, Marshall said. Three years earlier, GE announced mass layoffs at its lighting business in Hungary because of a European Union directive phasing out conventional, low efficiency lighting by 2013.
