Hell Energy inaugurates HUF 80 billion capacity expansion

Hungarian soft drink maker Hell Energy inaugurated an 80 billion forint (EUR 206.7m) capacity expansion at its base in Szikszo, in north-eastern Hungary, on Friday.

The expansion will create 240 jobs, Peter Szijjarto, the minister of foreign affairs and trade, said at the inauguration, according to a ministry statement.

The joint investment by Hell Energy and its canning unit, Quality Pack, will enable the production of around 4 billion cans of beverage and 6 billion filled finished products, Szijjarto said.

The investment will strengthen Hell Energy’s position as market leader not only in Hungary, but also in Romania, Bulgaria, Greece, Cyprus and Croatia and could further expand its export market currently consisting of over 60 countries, he said.
