NyÃregyhÃ¡za, Hungary -- ContiTech has opened a new plant for rubber compounds 5 Dec in NyÃregyhÃ¡za, Hungary. Around 25 new jobs have been created at this production site.
The plant belongs to Phoenix LÃ©grugrÃ³ TechnolÃ³gia Ltd, which already operates a plant for air spring systems in NyÃregyhÃ¡za with 220 employees.
The new compounding centre supplies the ContiTech plants for air suspension systems in NyÃregyhÃ¡za, the hose production sites in MakÃ³, Hungary and Carei, Romania, as well as external customers in the region.
