Szentkirályi-Kékkúti opens EUR 2.6 mln plant
Mineral water bottler Szentkirályi-Kékkúti Ásványvíz inaugurated a syrup mixing plant in Kékkút on Friday through an investment of EUR 2.6 million, according to reports.
Through the investment at the plant, which will produce fruit-flavored mineral water, the company expects to boost production by 15% and raise its share of Hungaryʼs mineral water market to 50%-60%, said company president Levente Balogh, according to Hungarian news agency MTI.
The company was created last year through the merger of Szentkirályi and Kékkúti. The merged company employs a staff of 320 in Hungary and had joint revenues of HUF 14.8 billion in 2016.
