Sensor Manufacturer Sensirion Begins Hiring

In the coming months the high tech sensor manufacturer Sensirion will hire approximately 50 staff for its new manufacturing plant located in the “Debrecen Regional and Innovation Science and Technology Park” to the south of Debrecen. The new site covers an area of approximately 5000 square metres and will manufacture Sensirions range of sensors.

The product range includes gas and liquid flow sensors, differential pressure sensors and environmental sensors for measuring humidity and temperature, analyzing volatile organic compounds, and analyzing carbon dioxide and particles. It’s products are sold far and wide with sales offices in the US, China, Japan and throughout Europe.

At the foundation stone laying ceremony, in June Debrecen’s Mayor was keen to highlight the cities momentum towards a bright future.

“The arrival of Sensirion further strengthens our aspirations in Debrecen’s ten-year strategy until 2030: education and urban planning are based on successful economic development. This investment also proves that Debrecen is one of the most competitive cities in Europe, as it is the first in Europe to build a new plant in Debrecen, apart from Sensirion’s headquarters in Switzerland. Our city is committed to the development of Sensirion, and as before, we will do everything in the future to make the company’s aspirations a reality”.

László Papp, Mayor of Debrecen

By 2025 when the plant is fully operational the initial figure of 50 staff will likely rise to around 200. Indeed Debrecen University and the strong background in the science and engineering it supplies was cited as one factor as to why the Swiss Sensirion chose Debrecen as the final location after looking elsewhere in Central and Eastern Europe.

The Debrecen Sensirion facility will be run by László Ábrahám ex. NI CEO and so is in safe hands when it comes to attracting and retaining local talent. What is clear about this plant is the importance of it for retaining local talent by supplying appropriate jobs for graduating students from Debrecen University as well as from Debrecens highly successful vocational engineering training programs.

In his keynote speech, László Ábraham, Director of Sensirion Hungary Kft pointed out that Sensirion spends nearly a quarter of the Swiss company’s sales on research and development, which is an outstandingly high ratio. This fact – emphasized Dr. László Ábrahám – largely proves that a real high tech company has arrived in Debrecen.
