Filtronic to create 100 jobs in Hungary
UK based telecom equipment maker, Filtronic Plc., will open a production plant in Hungary later this year.
The establishment will make Filtronic less dependent on its Chinese plant for low cost production. The multi million pounds investment is expected to create 100 jobs initially. In preparation to this, Filtronic has established a subsidiary in Hungary called Filtronic Comtek Hungary Kft. This was reported by daily news paper Világgazdaság via BBJ. Filtronic plc designs and manufactures a broad range of customised RF, microwave and millimetre wave components and subsystems. The company's products are used in wireless communication infrastructure equipment, cellular handsets, electronic defence systems, and point-to-point communication systems. These products filter, amplify and transmit and receive RF signals. Filtronic's customers are leading international original equipment manufacturers together with prominent defence contractors such as British Aerospace and Lockheed Martin. The Company has achieved a pre-eminent level of engineering expertise and currently employs over 400 engineers, many of whom hold PhDs. These engineers operate from sites in Europe, North America, Australia and China.
