Nyíregyháza, Hungary – German supplier of gangway systems and elastomer door sealings for buses and railway industry Huebner Group has expanded its manufacturing site Nyíregyháza in northeast Hungary.
The project involved the construction of a new production hall, spanning 8,600 square metres, at Huebner’s largest location outside Germany, the company announced in an 18-Sept statement.
The company said it invested nearly €11 million in the first phase of the expansion project and is planning another €6.5-million investment at the site.
Set for commercial production as of next year, the new production unit will produce gangway systems for the bus industry, where there has been strong growth for several years.
The new investments will also support “significant capacity increases” in railway vehicle gangways, the company added.
The expansion, according to the family-owned company, has been prompted by “strong growth in the mobility sector” and reinforces Huebner’s commitment to the location, which was set up 22 years ago.
"With the present multi-million-euro investment we want to continue to develop existing business areas and to facilitate further growth," said location head Ingo Heerdt.
