Production Starts in GMD Group’s Hungarian Plant

September 16, 2019

The aluminum casting plant of the French automotive supplier GMD Group is now running on full capacity in Dorog, NW of Budapest. Its construction required an investment of over EUR 65 million, which made the plant the company's most modern and most efficient site in Europe.

The investment was executed by GMD Cast Hungary (founded in 2017), which launched the project with the purchase of the plant previously used by the Japanese company of Sanyo and Panasonic, in the Dorog Industrial Park. Reconstruction was over by 2019, production lines and molding sections were gradually integrated in the production process. The automobile component manufacturing plant in Dorog will be the largest and concurrently the most modern, most efficient and highly robotized unit in Europe as far as the GMD Group's foundry business line is concerned. The first investment, of EUR 65 million, will result in the creation of 240 new jobs, mostly for highly skilled professionals, experts and technicians.
GMD Group manufactures metal and plastic products, mainly for the car industry. They are specialized in pressing, injection molding, thermoforming, aluminum melting and casting while gaskets are also made there. Besides manufacturing, the portfolio includes the design and development of car and machinery components, especially for the steering gear, the gearbox and other engine parts. The French company group, which is represented in 14 countries around the world, provides work for some 5,500 people globally. This year, its turnover is expected to exceed EUR one billion.
The Hungarian GMD portfolio was extended in 2019 as the company bought a plant in Bonyhád in southern Hungary, where a staff of 160 are engaged in the production of leather interior components for top brands and models of the VW Group, Lamborghini and Bentley.
