Hauni technology and capacity expansion in Pécs

February 8, 2019

An investment project is to be launched at the Pécs site of Hauni Hungaria that celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. The industrial equipment and machinery manufacturing division of the German Körber Group is going to spend EUR 18.5 million on the expansion of its manufacturing and service area.

The project will receive some EUR 3 million euros in state funding, which was justified by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s Parliamentary State Secretary Levente Magyar with the investment installing state-of-the-art mechanical industry technology and creating 100 new jobs.

The international technology industry group now consists of more than 140 production, service and sales companies. To date, the field of industrial machinery is the most important one in its portfolio, which covers five divisions, that is, logistics systems, pharmaceutical packaging systems, hygiene products, digital solutions and machinery production.

Hauni Hungária was founded in 1994, following the acquisition of the production halls and machinery of the former Sophianae Machine Production Company. The company offers a wide range of services in the field of the manufacturing of equipment and machinery, from construction through cutting, plate working, and the assembly of structural units and machines to the development of complete machines and equipment. Employing more than 1,300 people, the Pécs unit, with its four production halls at its production site of 52,000 square meters, is the second largest plant of Körber Group.

The new expansion project will reinforce the position of the Hungarian company within the group as the production area is going to be expanded with the modernization of the service logistics and quality management buildings, the renewing of the machinery park as well as Industry 4.0 technologies are going to be applied to move towards digitized and paper-free production. The 100 new jobs created in the framework of the investment – mostly demanding high qualifications – have already been filled with the help of the dual education program.
