Vita completes building of greenfield plant in Hungary

By Liz White. UT staffMiddleton, UK-British Vita plc says it has finished building its greenfield plant at Paks in Hungary. The UK firm estimates that foaming and converting equipment will be installed and commissioned in the second quarter, with production starting soon after that.The firm said it has invested Euro 7.9million in the Paks facility, which will make flexible polyurethane foam and act as a foam conversion facility “for the strategically important region of Central and Eastern Europe.” The location offers “excellent communications links with Hungary, Romania and the Balkans,” in a region which “has benefited from a rapid expansion in furniture and bedding manufacture and has been the focus for recent major investments by Western European furniture manufacturers,” said a British Vita statement. The move is consistent with Vita’s global strategy of following customers into new regions and aiding their expansion, Vita added. The Hungarian plant will be a “state-of-the-art factory” built and equipped to “the same high standards” as Vita’s greenfield sites in Poland and Lithuania, Vita said.”
