Samsung SDI Hungary, a part of Samsung Electronics which focuses on the production and wholesale of electronic equipment and apparatus for radio, television, communication and household appliances, has started building a new plant in Göd, central Hungary, the completion of which is expected by March 2007. Samsung started its operation in Hungary in 1990 and since then it has established four sites across the country: Samsung Electronics in Jászfényszaru which manufactures TVs; a plant in Szigetszentmiklós, Samsung Elektromechanikai, which produces TV parts; and a trading company in Budapest, Samsung Electronics, and Samsung SDI, in Göd. The new site in Göd will produce modules, the biggest and the most expensive part of plasma TVs, in a 20,000 square metre plant. The expansion will create 550 jobs, Tamás Szirmay, Head of Samsung SDI, said. The new plant will also bring more suppliers to Samsung's Hungarian base.
