SITE VISIT IN ESZTERGOM - TE HUNGARY'S PLANT EXTENSION PROJECT AT A CLOSE-UP
13 October 2022
We visited our client, TE Hungary at its Hungarian plant in Esztergom. Mr. Zsolt Csányi, company manager guided us through the labyrinth of production halls, showing us the manufacturing processes and also the new plant extension project, in which our firm provides full contractual and construction law legal support to TE Hungary.
Our client, Tyco Electronics Hungary Kft (TE Hungary), whose main activity is the production of various automotive components for leading automotive brands, has recently decided to increase its manufacturing capacity in Hungary by extending its Esztergom plant.
The legal support for the plant expansion project is provided by our office, in which our colleagues Richárd Schmidt and Péter Korózs provide TE Hungary with complex contractual and construction law advice, from the tender process through the conclusion of the general construction contract and other contracts until the final handover of the project.
At the end of September 2022, Richárd and Péter had the opportunity to visit TE Hungary's existing plant in Esztergom and the production hall currently under construction.
After picking up the necessary protective equipment, the company's manager Mr. Zsolt Csányi showed us TE Hungary's product range and guided us through the labyrinths of the company's production halls. It was fascinating to see how TE Hungary's automotive products are made, and we were especially surprised how human work is supported or replaced by robots in the manufacturing processes.
We could also visit the groundworks of the new hall that is part of the expansion project.
We would like to thank Mr. Csányi and TE Hungary for the exciting sight-seeing tour, and especially for the delicious lunch in the canteen of the Esztergom plant!

TRADE SECRET THEFTS IN HUNGARY – WHICH COURT PROTECTS EMPLOYERS’ RIGHTS?
Trade secrets are protected on more levels in Hungary. While the Business Secret Act provides general protection, the Labour Code protects the business secrets of employers in the employment context. Yet this abundance can cause problems when it comes to the question which court is competent to protect employer’s rights in case of theft of trade secrets by an ex-employee. Can an employer file a damage claim against an ex-employee and a competing company as co-defendants in front of the commercial court? Or is it the labour court which is competent to hear the case? A fresh decision of the Hungarian Supreme Court, analysed in this short article, deals with these questions.Read more »
