The new plant is to open up 20-40 new jobs in the region.

"Komárom-Esztergom County remains to be a priority target for investments; the unceasing interest is also reflected in the outstanding employment figures of the county. It is special added pleasure to celebrate a development that will increase the regional competitiveness of a Hungarian-owned company", Pál Völner pointed out. The New Széchenyi Plan has contributed to the implementation of the employment creating investment by HUF 812 million, the Minister of State added.
