German car maker Audi has selected Hungarian construction company A-K to build a 200,000-square-metre logistics unit near the firm’s factory in Gyõr. The HUF 20 billion (EUR 70.19 million) project is estimated to be finished by the second half of 2013 and is said to be essential for the EUR 1 billion expansion of the Audi plant. There was some controversy over the location but Audi eventually decided in July that the unit would be sited in Gyõr because the city is more economical for the company. Nearby Gönyü, which is essentially the port of Gyõr, was the other option. Audi announced last year that it will invest EUR 1 billion to build a factory with 1,800 workers and a daily capacity of 500 cars. The logistics park will serve as a storage area and house some of Audi’s suppliers.
