Schneider Electric, the leader in the digital transformation of energy management and industrial automation, broke ground on its new smart factory in Dunavesce, Hungary. With a planned investment of €40 million, the new site will span 25,000 m2 and have a headcount of 500 employees.

The 36th smart factory in Europe, this will be the 22nd engeneering-to-order factory in the region, producing primary and secondary switchgears, low voltage cabinets and components, and state-of-the-art SF6-free AirSeT medium voltage switchgear range, all made-to-order to individual customers’ specifications.

From the first day of production, expected in 2024, the factory will be net zero. Geothermal energy and rooftop solar will power the site, and Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure energy management solutions will maximize its energy efficiency.
