Work in Linamar's Békéscsaba factory

Linamar Starts up with Electro-mobility in Békéscsaba

February 13, 2020

Canadian automotive company Linamar establishes its European electro-mobility center in southeast Hungary. The partially-independently developed electric powertrains of the firm will be manufactured in Békéscsaba for premium category cars. The two units (located in Orosháza and Békéscsaba), involved in the EUR 78 million investment program, will create 250 long-term, competitive jobs in the coming years.

The 50+ year-old Canadian group's operational areas, among others, include the manufacturing of automotive and mobile industrial equipment and the production of light, heavy and other vehicles. Linamar Corporation has 61 factories, ten R&D centers and 25 commercial offices in 17 countries across North and South America, Europe and Asia.

Linamar has three units in Hungary: in Orosháza, Békéscsaba and Gyöngyös, giving work to more than 2,600 people as an active member of the dual training system. The newly built production hall in Orosháza will give a significant push to the manufacturing of aerial work platforms and self-propelled scissor lifts, creating a hundred new jobs.

At the same time, the manufacturing of electronic powertrains, as a new activity in Békéscsaba, is another significant step towards a stronger electro-mobility sector in Hungary. Production in the newly built, 10,000-sqm factory will provide long-term work to 150 employees, relying on the latest technologies.
