Hungary’s Lightning Company Tungsram Announces Mass Layoffs

2022. április 29.


Renowned Hungarian lighting company Tungsram will lay off 1,600 people – more than half of its total workforce- by year’s end as a result of its decision to cease production of conventional lighting.

Tungsram CEO Joerg Bauer has announced a collective redundancy on Wednesday. By the end of the year, 1,600 workers will leave the 125-year-old Hungarian company, which employs a total of 3,000 people, so the layoffs will affect more than half of the workforce.
