Canadian multinational Linamar will create 250 new jobs  at the Hungarian sites of Orosháza (100 jobs) and Békéscsaba (150 jobs).

Under a complex investment project worth of €78 million a new production hall, that will be used in the production of aerial work platforms and self-propelled scissor lifts, has been built in Orosháza. The production hall Békéscsaba will manufacture electric powertrains for premium electric cars. This latter project – the cost of which makes up about two-third of the total investment cost – is the largest industrial investment in the history of Békéscsaba so far.

Linamar has been active in Hungary since 1992, both as a manufacturer of agricultural machinery and as an automotive parts manufacturer. The present investment reflects a shift in the firm’s focus toward electromobility on the one hand, and a strengthening of its position as a producer of agricultural and general machinery on the other.

The government financially supported the investment, based on a one-off government decision.
