Rhenus Kft, the Hungarian unit of German logistics, waste management and water treatment company Rethmann, plans to spend around Ft 1 billion to build a 9,000-square-meter warehouse complex at its base in the Győr industrial park in northwest Hungary, business daily Napi Gazdaság reported on Tuesday.
The complex is scheduled to be completed in 2007, László Balogh, who manages the industrial park, told the paper. He added that, as a result of the investment, the number of workers at the base would increase to about 100.
Rhenus, which provides services to the Győr-based Hungarian unit of German carmaker Audi, has invested Ft 1.5 billion at its base to build a 5,700-square-meter warehouse at a 6.4-hectare site it bought in the park last year. Since July, Rhenus has employed 40 workers in two shifts, but a third shift will be added by year-end. Rhenus also provides services for the automotive industry suppliers Rehau of Germany and Plastal of Italy.
