It’s been an exciting time for everyone here at Leyland Hose and Silicone!
July 2021 saw the official opening of our brand-new factory and distribution centre, situated near Budapest in Hungary. Covering over 2,000 sqm, this new facility will enable us to triple our previous manufacturing capacity, provide an alternative cost-effective offering, significantly reduce logistical costs and reduce delivery times, especially for our European-based customers.
Our Sales Director, Ian Walsh said “This is such an exciting time for us at LHSS. The company has grown considerably over the last couple of years and to accommodate future growth and further support our European customers, an increase in product manufacturing capacity was required. This additional capacity will allow us to competitively serve new customers and markets. The new facility will also support the local community in Hungary by providing additional employment and career development opportunities.”
Entering into full production in early 2021, the factory was officially opened on the 27th July 2021, attended by local Hungarian dignitaries and Leyland Holding Company board members and directors.
