SMR was awarded a HUF 1.4 billion state subsidy for the plant.
The 15,000sqm plant will supply mirrors for Mercedes and BMW, among other partners, said SMR Magyarország factory director Pál Levente Tibori. Development engineers will also work at the plant, designing mirrors for different European carmakers, he added.
