Rehau to Expand in Hungary
New Automotive Production Site in Ujhartyan
Polymer specialist Rehau AG + Co, Rehau, Germany, is building a new plant in Ujharyan/Hungary. The green light has now been given for an investment of EUR 150 million for the new production location, in which system components for the automotive industry will be manufactured.
The construction work for the new plant including administration building, generous production and fabrication areas as well as a state-of-the-art, eco-friendly painting line is scheduled to be completed by the end of April 2019. Exterior body parts such as bumpers and spoilers for well-known car manufacturers will then be produced there using an injection moulding process and painted. Construction is planned to start in March 2018.
The land is about 400,000 m2 , the building area about 63,000 m2 . In order to ensure "short distances" between the product lines, the construction of a large, connected building is planned in which the functional areas are optimally arranged. The administration building is connected to the plant by a bridge. Additionally, a central traffic yard will be built to bundle plant traffic.
"The decision to build a new plant in Hungary is part of Rehau's international growth strategy," explains Markus Grundmann, Chairman of Rehau Automotive. The company stands for dynamics, innovation and responsibility. With the new building, which will be built to the latest economic and ecological aspects, the company is paving the way for continued positive development as a premium supplier to the automotive industry, Grundmann explains.
