The investment is expected to create 100 jobs in Hungary, raising the current staff in the country to 2,200 and placing the company among the top 100 biggest firms here, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó said at the inauguration.
The firm is planning to split its business into two parts in the second half of the year, and will operate two separate service centers in Székesfehérvár, Hungarian news agency MTI reported.
A service center with 440 employees will support the newly formed Arconic company while the other center with a staff of 150 will provide services for Alcoa, MTI added.
