Since Audi Hungaria was founded in 1993, it has developed into one of the country’s companies with the biggest exports and highest revenues. With a total investment volume of more than €7,433 million, AUDI AG is today one of the most important foreign investors in Hungary and one of the biggest employers in the region: Audi Hungaria recruited its 11,000th employee in August last year. As of December 31, 2014, the company employed 11,274 people.
Last year, Audi Hungaria produced a total of 1,973,734 engines and 135,232 automobiles. 24 train pairs travel between the Audi sites in Hungary and Germany each week, guaranteeing environmentally friendly and cost-efficient transport with short journey times. Győr is halfway between Budapest and Vienna in the northwestern corner of the Carpathian Basin. With 130,000 inhabitants, Győr is one of Hungary’s biggest cities and a major cultural center. Soon after being founded, the city was an important administrative center and episcopal seat, and received its city charter in 1271. Since the early 20th century, Győr has developed into the center of the Hungarian automobile and mechanical engineering industry. Győr-Moson-Sopron is today – after Budapest and Komitat Pest – the region in Hungary where the most companies with foreign involvement are located.
