The British LHSS has inaugurated its first European manufacturing unit in Szigetszentmiklós

The Britain-based Leyland Hose & Silicone Services (LHSS) has established its first European manufacturing unit in Hungary. As an automotive supplier, the company has been engaged in the manufacturing and sales of silicone hoses for more than 30 years.

LHSS decided in 2019 to open a new plant in response to market demand. The company had already a manufacturing unit in India but they were looking for a European location for their second site. They decided in favour of Hungary at the end of this process, where they are opening their manufacturing plant in Szigetszentmiklós as a brownfield investment. The manufacturing equipment were installed early 2020, the trial operation started in the spring of 2021, so everything is ready for launching the production and exports. The unit currently employs 20 people, and this headcount will be further increased by 28 persons by autumn.
