HUNGARY: Stadler is to invest €30m to double the capacity of its centre of competence for bogie refurbishment in Szolnok from 250 to 500 bogies per year.
The investment announced on March 29 is to be undertaken in two phases. The first phase of construction will get underway in April for completion in the third quarter of 2018, providing 8 000 m2 of space for refurbishment work and supporting office activities. The second phase includes a 20 000 m2 storage hall, which would be used jointly by the bogie centre and Stadler’s car body factory.
Stadler’s centre of competence for bogies was launched in 2013, and has since refurbished more than 1 000 bogies and supported the assembly of new bogies.
