Premium Automotive Supplier To Set Up New Production Site in Miskolc
2023. 09. 28.
German-owned Meleghy Automotive implements a EUR 22.9 million investment in Miskolc with the aim of establishing production capacities in Hungary. The project of the premium automotive supplier will create 55 new jobs.
Meleghy & Cie Automotive GmbH can pride itself on having 100 years of tradition; however, in its current form it has been operating since 2012. The Germany-based group’s foreign operation has included plants in Spain and the Czech Republic, and now the group has decided to set up shop in Hungary as well.
Meleghy Automotive supplies premium OEMs, including BMW and Mercedes-Benz, with bodywork components all over the continent. The EUR 22.9 million investment aims at setting up a production unit and a hall that will be home to an office and a storage facility. The total area of the newly erected buildings amounts to over 6,000 square meters, with serial production scheduled to start in August 2025. The groundbreaking ceremony marked the official launch of the construction phase.
The city of Miskolc was picked as the investment location not least because of the proximity of regional and other European customers of the company. As a result, Meleghy Automotive will be able to make its supply chain more efficient, whereas transport times can be cut. Customers will also be enabled to respond to the quickly changing market needs faster.
