Sensirion to establish production facility in Debrecen, Hungary

June 30, 2020
The new site will be built over the next 12 months, starting with the groundbreaking event on June 30, 2020

Sensirion is expanding its production capabilities by establishing a production site in Debrecen, Hungary. According to the company, the move comes as it is seeing positive business trends and an increasing demand for its sensors. The site is being built and financed by a local “build-to-suit” partner. Sensirion has signed a long-term lease agreement. This new production facility is an expansion, which means that no existing jobs in Switzerland are affected.

Sensirion selected Debrecen to handle the growing demand for sensors after an evaluation of potential locations throughout Central and Eastern Europe. Decisive factors in selecting a location were proximity to its customers in Europe, the education level of potential employees and support from local partners. The Hungarian Investment Promotion Agency (HIPA) and the Debrecen Urban and Economic Development Center (EDC) have supported Sensirion with detailed site evaluation and planning, and the identification of local implementation partners.

“Debrecen’s excellent infrastructure, especially education facilities such as the University of Debrecen and the vocational training institutions, combined with an established industrial base, was the decisive factor in Sensirion choosing to establish a new production site there,” said Patrick Good, director maintenance & infrastructure at Sensirion.

The new site will be built over the next 12 months, starting with the groundbreaking event on June 30, 2020. Completion of construction and the subsequent start of production are anticipated by the third quarter of 2021.

Initially, about 50 new jobs will be created. Starting in 2022, the Debrecen Sensirion team will add engineered products and production technologies to its portfolio. It is expected that by 2025, the number of jobs will have increased approximately fourfold. As the Debrecen site serves to expand production capacity, it will not affect any jobs at the existing Sensirion production sites in Switzerland, China and South Korea.
