2023. 11. 06.
Körber Hungária Kft. invests EUR 14.4 million to add new equipment to its existing capacities and set up an automated storage facility at its Pécs site. Scheduled to be completed by the end of 2025, the investment also includes the installation of solar panels to cover a substantial portion of the company’s energy needs.
The origins of the Hamburg-based Körber Group go back all the way to 1946. Being present in over 100 locations worldwide by now, the Group established its stronghold in Hungary almost three decades ago.
The main scope of activity of the Hungarian subsidiary located in Pécs concerns the manufacturing of machinery in the field of food and tobacco industry. Related services include design, assembly and development of equipment.
Körber Hungária Kft. embodies the second largest site of the Group that produces almost exclusively for export. Now the company invests EUR 14.4 million to meet growing customer demand. The purpose of the project is to increase production capacities as well improve flexibility and efficiency. In addition to the capacity extension, an automated storage facility is also in the works.
Part of the development is the installation of solar panels that are set to cover up to 25-30% of the company’s energy needs. This way Körber’s carbon footprint can be reduced significantly.
