The first hall, of 10,000 square metres, was built in 1997 in Tatabánya as part of a greenfield investment, which was followed by an additional construction project of the same size three years later. The next step happened in 2006, when the company purchased the abandoned production hall next to its facility, which made it possible to quadruple the original production area.
