Volkswagen's Audi division will add 300 more jobs at its Hungarian unit in Hungary than initially planned, as the carmaker expands production, Audi announced in a statement.
The German company, which set up its Hungarian subsidiary in 1993, currently employs more than 6,500 people at its subsidiary in the western Hungarian city of Győr. Last September they promised to invest €900 million ($1.3 billion) in Hungary by 2013, creating 1,800 jobs.
Audi chairman Rupert Stadler said at the groundbreaking ceremony that Audi would also set up its own pressing plant at the base in Győr.
Hungary will extend HUF 11.2 billion ($61 million) in state subsidies to Audi for the €900 million investment, Economy Minister György Matolcsy said in April.
