The latest Sensirion production site in Hungary is a strategic expansion, meaning existing jobs in Switzerland or at other sites will not be affected. Sensor production has started successfully at the factory and the first mass flow meters have already been shipped to customers.
At the beginning of September, a new development team was set up for Sensirion Automotive Solutions at the site in Debrecen. The seven-person team will independently handle sensor projects that meet the standards required by most European automotive customers.
"I'm delighted with the extremely successful start in Hungary. We've laid an important foundation for expanding our module production capacities and responding to the growing demand for sensors in various markets," said Johannes Bleuel, VP Operations at Sensirion.
Construction work began on June 30 last year with the first sensors coming off the line in the new production hall at the end of August and the first mass flow meters for ventilators have already been shipped to customers.
"We're very pleased to have welcomed many new employees in Debrecen. However, we still have vacancies advertised and are happy to accept further applications," said Laszlo Abraham, General Manager at Sensirion Hungary Kft.
The production site was designed to be completely fossil-free with geothermal energy and heat recovery coupled with a storage system, following the example of the production site in Stäfa.
"The idea of sustainable development is also reflected in the use of state-of-the-art LED lighting and the recycling of packaging and paper. In addition, a company-owned park with native fruit and ornamental trees, as well as an orchard meadow and an apiary, complements the new production site," said Patrick Good, Head of Infrastructure at Sensirion.
