2020. 02. 21.
The cornerstone of the new production hall of Starters E-Components Generators Automotive (S.E.G.A.) Hungary was laid and a strategic partnership agreement was signed between the representative of the corporation and Péter Szijjártó, Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade. As the 83rd strategic partner of the Hungarian Government, SEGA will move to the new production hall in Szirmabesenyő, near Miskolc, by the summer of 2021, where, in addition to the production, the R&D department will continue to work in brand new laboratories, too.
Formerly known as Robert Bosch Starter Motors Generators Holding, belonging to the Bosch Group, the division left the German company group with the help of a Chinese investor group in 2018. The new organisation, under the name SEG Automotive Germany, continues with the automotive innovation and knowledge that has accumulated in the field of the manufacturing and development of starter motors, generators, start-stop systems and mild hybrid solutions for more than a century. The company employs more than 8,000 people in 14 countries worldwide.
The Hungarian subsidiary of the group, Starters E-Components Generators Automotive (S.E.G.A.) Hungary develops and produces automotive products, mainly starter motors and generators in Miskolc as well as in Szirmabesenyő, close to Miskolc. SEGA produces approximately 9.6 million products a year, and continuously develops and introduces new products, one of the most important ones being the start-stop starter engine developed in Hungary. In addition to starters and generators, SEGA's R&D team is also involved in the development of Boost Recuperation Machine (BRM) mild hybrid systems, employing over 1,800 people in total.
The new production hall of 13,500 square metres to be built in Szirmabesenyő as part of the latest development, where the entire manufacturing process will be moved from Miskolc, will include a 4500 square metre laboratory and development area. Developed and manufactured in Hungary, SEGA's high-performance, long-life products make a significant contribution to reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
