Infineon Technologies has opened a new factory in Cegléd, Hungary.

The new site is dedicated to the assembly and testing of high-power semiconductor modules to drive the electrification of vehicles. In addition, Infineon has invested in further production capacities for high-power modules that enable green energy, from wind turbines and solar modules to energy-efficient drives.

“Infineon is pursuing a long-term growth path. Decarbonisation and digitalisation are driving demand for our semiconductor solutions,” said Infineon’s COO Rutger Wijburg. “Cegléd already has a strong track record in enabling green energy. The new manufacturing capacities will help Infineon accommodate the growing demand for electromobility applications.”

The growth of electromobility is undisputed an cars with fully or partially electrified drivetrains are expected to account for more than 50 percent of cars produced by 2027, according to recent forecasts.

Infineon has shown a long term and continuous commitment in Hungary and has now invested an additional 100 million EUR in this new fab, complemented by support from the Hungarian government.

Tamás Szabó, Managing Director of Infineon Technologies Cegléd Kft. said, “Infineon has been present in Hungary for more than 25 years as a manufacturer of innovative semiconductor products, building on a highly reliable regional industrial infrastructure. Over the years, Infineon has gained a strong reputation in power modules, serving customers all over the world.”

When the new factory is fully staffed, another 275 employees will work for Infineon in Cegléd, bringing the total headcount to approximately 1,600. Production ramp-up started earlier this year.
