Hungarian press: Daimler evaluates the costs of a factory in Romania

The Daimler group, owner of the Mercedes brand, made several studies on the construction and logistical expenses implied by the opening of an automobile factory in Romania, after it postponed doubling the capacity of the Kecskemet plant, in Hungary, the Hungarian press reports, quoting sources, according to Mediafax. “It seems that at company’s headquarters studies were made referring to the construction, respectively the expenses with logistics in Romania, o source told the Hungarian portal Index. The decision to delay by one or more years the expansion of the Hungarian plant apparently was determined by the imprevisible policies – also aggressive towards multinationals – promoted by the Budapest government led by Viktor Orban. Daimler also denied the news published by Hungarian press about the plans to expand the capacity of the Kecskemet factory. “We deny the press speculations about the expansion of the Mercedes-Benz factory of Kecskemet being planned for 2013 and then postponed. Daimler confirmed, at the inauguration of the plant in March 2012, that there is potential for an expansion at Kecskemet. However, no decision was made with this regard, so there is no delay,” a spokesperson for the German group said.
