In 2021, the company inaugurated its first container factory in Székesfehérvár, Hungary, which is currently capable of producing 1,000 foldable containers per year and provides jobs for 53 employees. In the future, the Continest factory will use Industry 4.0 solutions, and the company’s state-of-the-art sheet metal plant and welding hall will be supported by robot technology for efficient production. The company is also planning a significant expansion of its workforce, with nearly 50 new jobs to be created by 2022. The second plant will also offer the possibility of in-house surface treatment of containers, and the annual production of containers will reach 3,000 units.
The company is currently working on developments such as the fully equipped kitchen container, cargo containers, which are also suitable for freight transport. Another ongoing project is the vertical farm container, which is being developed in partnership with Green Drops Farm and Baptist Relief Services to create a hydroponics-based crop production system without the need for topsoil.
In addition, Continest is continuously developing its containers for medical and defence use. In May 2022, the Hungarian Defence Export Agency signed the first cooperation agreement with the company, under which the military technology agency will assist Continest in international marketing and distribution.
The Continest success story reflects the exceptional combination of manifested, intensively growing global market potential, a truly innovative and well-customizable technology and a committed, ambitious and visionary management team which is already proven to move its company forward. It was a great honour for us that – after the first successful investment round in 2019 – our team was trusted again to support Continest in preparing, negotiating and closing its current investment round. We are delighted to take part in achieving the current milestone but Continest’s growth journey is not yet over; moreover, I feel confident that a new Hungarian success story is just being born!” – added Lénárd Horgos.
Congratulations and thanks to the excellent Continest team for cooperating and being part of their success story!
We wish them good luck to achieve their ambitious goals!
