The decision about the new factory at the Cegléd premises of the semiconductor manufacturing and developing Infineon was made less than a year after the new central building of the company was inaugurated in June 2018 at the settlement in Pest county.

With the semiconductor technology of Infineon the entire energy supply chain of vehicles works more efficiently. Besides efficient energy management, Infineon’s semiconductor solutions enable smart mobility, and the secure capture and transfer of data.

Infineon Technologies AG with headquarters in Munich, employing over 40,000 people is a world market leader in semiconductor applications. The company group is present in 134 locations worldwide, in Asia-Pacific, Europe, Africa, the Middle-East, Japan, and also North and South-America.

The role of the Infineon Group employing some 1,300 people in Hungary is reinforced by the fact, that the company also pays attention to involving the Hungarian small and medium-size enterprises among its suppliers. The company in Cegléd is a decisive production base of performance-semiconductor modules, and the semiconductors produced here are used in industrial automation and power technology, medical equipment, energy production, transportation and distribution, and also in the field of renewable energy sources.
