1998

Foundation of WIKA Kft. in Hungary by Karl Wiedemann.

Initially, the components are manufactured here (tank, booms, liquid ring pumps, etc.). The already existing production hall, which was bought, looks large and it seems inconceivable that it will ever be fully utilized. The limits reveal themselves only a few years later.

In 2006, the premises are expanded and a new assembly hall for vehicle construction is built.

Another production hall is built in 2014 and another test hall is added in 2016.
