HUNGARY: US company Modine Manufacturing has completed construction of a new, 92,000ft² vehicle cooling product manufacturing facility in Mezökövesd, Hungary.
Situated on 1 million ft² of land adjacent to an existing Modine location, the state-of-the-art building adds capacity to build aluminium engine and powertrain cooling products for the automotive, off-highway and commercial vehicle markets.
