The founding team of Balluff-Elektronika Kft with Managing Director Arpád Melles (third from right): The team soon achieved success for the new branch. Initially, production focused on coils for proximity switches. The workforce in Hungary worked a five-day week on a two-shift basis. The Kinomat, an automatic coiling machine, was even operated around the clock. In the space of a few months, the workforce swelled to 30 and the factory was running so well that further extensions were soon on the agenda. Today, Veszprém is one of Balluff Group’s two main production facilities.
