Wittmann Battenfeld GmbH is setting up a separate sales and service subsidiary in Hungary, in Budaörs, near Budapest.
The machinery maker's Hungarian assembly plant is in the city of Mosonmagyaróvár.
Operations begin at the sales and service operation, Sept. 1, staffed by 14 employees. The new location is within easy reach of customers in all parts of Hungary, the company said.
The move also allows the factory, under the management of Thomas Wittmann, to continue expanding production capacity to accommodate the start-up of assembling the EcoPower machine series, and the ongoing production of robots and Tempro temperature controllers.
Zsolt Rapolti is the manager of the new sales subsidiary. He has been a regional salesman for Wittmann Battenfeld since 2012.
