GE Hungary Component Factory Zalaegerszeg


In the past decades a team of professional technicians was formed in our plant, that manages to solve even the most special and complicated tasks. The Zalaegerszeg Plant has a group of 24 qualified engineers. Complying with the customer demands we plan and build tools, produce even prototypes and high series of pressed metal parts.

The city of Zalaegerszeg

Our company started working in Zalaegerszeg in 1976. As the local parts factory of General Electric (GE, formerly known as TUNGSRAM) our main focus used to be the production of various types of light bulbs but since then our product range has been expanded and now we mass produce parts for the car industry and other parts installed in electronic devices.

Our metal and metal-sheet processing and tool manufacturing capacities are suitable for the production and development of GE LED lighting systems and thus satisfy the needs of external partners as well.

Our company uses a high standard quality management system, we can guarantee that all safety and environmental protection regulations are met, we protect our employees and the environment and we put special emphasis on the continuous training of our workers.

We constantly improve our machinery to supply the EMEA region with innovative products.

Toolmaking
According to the customer requirements we design, manufacture and install the required tools. In this process we are in continuous contact with the customer to make the prototypes and modify the tool in order to meet the optimal performance. It is possible through the continuous development of our pool of 70 special machines and the knowledge of 30 years. We produce more than 300 different tools per year in our tool workshop.

Mass production of metal parts

We are able to produce different kinds of metal parts made out of copper, aluminium, or steel with 0,2-2 mm thickness. More than 170 pressing machines and other equipments produce 10 million pieces of metal parts a day. Our pressing machines range from 1 to 100 tons. We are able to nickel plate and abrade the metals parts produced.
Our traditional products are lamp components.
