The production in Hungary is running smoothly.

For the past 10 years, maxon motor hungary has successfully been producing component groups and high-precision DC motors.

The trend towards increasingly smaller and more powerful drive components is in full force. At the same time, the product development cycle is getting shorter and shorter. To enable a more flexible response to the market demands, maxon motor founded a third production plant in Veszprém, Hungary, in 2001. Ten years later, the drive specialist can add another success story to its history.

maxon motor has always put a high premium on well-planned expansion and sustainable growth. With production sites in Switzerland, Germany and Hungary, maxon motor today has factory space totaling 16,000 m2 and a distribution network in more than 30 countries at its disposal; around 80 percent of the produced goods are exported into 55 countries. Additionally, maxon motor has managed to continuously increase its revenue and workforce over the past 50 years; in 2010, a record result of 307 million Swiss francs was achieved. The production plant in Hungary has played an important part in this success. Currently, more than 190 employees assemble component groups and manufacture DC motors there.

2001 to 2011: From brush covers to high-precision minimotors.

The constant growth of the maxon group in the 1990s made it necessary to expand the production capacity. At the existing production sites in Sachseln (CH) and Sexau (D), further growth was only possible to a limited degree and the higher market demands and new manufacturing technologies necessitated increasingly stronger specialization. In early 2001, the company therefore decided to evaluate and develop a new production site: In December 2001, maxon motor hungary kft. was founded.

The production of lever and plunger brush covers started at the beginning of 2002. These are important components of maxon precision drives. At the time, 7 employees worked at the Veszprém plant. By the end of 2002, this number had already increased to 18. In 2003, another 22 employees joined the team. At the start of 2003, it became clear that the rented premises would soon limit the expansion of the production capacity. Therefore construction work on the new factory started in 2004, on a surface area of 830 m2 and with a total production area of 900 m2. One year later, the number of employees increased to 97. At the same time, new machines for manufacturing the coreless maxon winding were set up. Today maxon motor hungary has more than 190 employees and has its own quality assurance. The production area has been increased to 2100 m2, to provide space for new manufacturing methods for new products.

The maxon motors from Hungary are used in numerous areas of application: For example in medical technology, industrial automation, in cars and airplanes, in measuring technology and security equipment, and in robotics
