Budapest, February 20, 2018, HELL ENERGY Magyarország Kft. began installing their newest canning line on January 22nd. The 5 billion forint investment will increase the plant’s manufacturing capacity to over twice the current and the HELL brand, which is available in 48 countries, will thus provide 70 new jobs in the disadvantaged region of Borsod.
Over the course of four weeks, more than 60 trucks will be transporting the elements of the 120.000 can/hour line to the HELL plant located in the town of Szikszó in Borsod. Spurred by the demand of the export market, HELL has almost doubled its production capacity by implementing this expansion, after the 3rd canning line has begun to operate, the plant will be able to produce 4,5 million cans per day. This exceptionally high-performance production line is of the most modern technology as regards 250 ml presentations and will be among the fastest canning lines in Central Europe. The new production line will be located in a 7200 m2 building right next to the original plant.
After installation is finished at the end of March, the trial run will begin in April, which will initially use water, as is the general practice. According to plan, the production line will reach its full capacity by the end of May enabling the HELL plant to be ready for the summer, which is the height of the soft drink season, with excellent high-quality energy drinks and soft drinks.
