Budapest, August 17 (MTI) – The Hungarian unit of EvoBus, the busmaking business of Germany’s Daimler, will deliver frames to Hungarian-owned ITK Holding for a low-floor bus it has developed.
The companies signed a declaration of intent on the partnership in Budapest on Wednesday.
ITK Holding expects to produce a prototype of the bus next spring. It will make the buses at its base in Debrecen (E Hungary).
Economy Minister Mihály Varga said after the signing ceremony that Debrecen is set to become a hub for vehicle and bus manufacturing. The partnership also means that Mercedes-Benz, a leading vehicle manufacturer in the world, expects the same high quality and performance from a Hungarian company as from its own plant, he added.
