Though back in October 2008, it seemed that Veritas can outlive the economic crisis with only small workforce reduction, by the beginning of December 2008 it became clear that further measures had to be taken to cut costs. Originally, the company dismissed workers on probation time and temporary agency workers, but later workers close to retirement age were also asked to take advantage of the possibility of early retirement. In January 2009, Veritas could not avoid cutting further 56 jobs. The number of job cuts totals 270.

At present, Dunakiliti (Györ-Moson-Sopron county) factory employs 764 workers. The Hungarian production facility, founded in 1995, is 100% owned by the Veritas mother company, with headquarters in Gelnhausen (Germany). It produces rubber and plastic parts for the automotive industry serving many European car manufacturers. The company serves other automotive industry suppliers too.
