2020. 10. 07.
Hungarian manufacturer of wellness equipment Wellis is to open a new production centre in Ózd in order to expand its production capacity for hydro massage pools. The installation of the new production lines will be complemented with the building of a warehouse covering an area of 20,000 square metres. The EUR 24 million investment, which will be implemented in slightly more than a year's time, is expected to generate 800 new jobs.
As a Hungarian manufacturer, Wellis Magyarország Zrt. is already market leader among the many wellness equipment producers and distributors, both at national and European level. The initial choice of import products is today replaced by privately developed and manufactured wellness products. The company's production halls enable the parallel manufacturing of tubs and hydro massage pools, with the use of robotics. By now Wellis Magyarország has become the company that sells the largest number of outdoor "whirlpool" baths in Europe. Needs are currently catered for by a staff of almost 600 employees.
In response to the steadily increasing market demand, progress has been a constant factor in the company's operation. As a next step, they are installing automated production lines on the new site, and are building a modern, automated 20,000 sq metre warehouse on the adjoining plot. Apparently the project is not only targeted at addressing the growing demand – it also wishes to increase Wellis' existing market share, going as far as the US markets.
