“The new project will involve both the purchase of machines to produce automotive electronic parts and the expansion of existing capacity”, said Javier González Pareja, representative of the Bosch Group in Hungary. “This will raise the company’s competitiveness and strengthen customer confidence, which is anticipated to generate further orders.” The expansion in Hatvan carries on Boschʼs programme of creating jobs in Hungary.
