North Hungarian Automotive Cluster


By now, Central Eastern Europe became the center of the automotive industry, practically all significant manufacturers from Europe and from the Far East have manufacturing sites in the region. At the present, there are four carmakers (Original Equipment Manufacturers), SUZUKI, GM, Mercedes and AUDI with assembling or motor manufacturing capacities in Hungary.  It is in the interest of the manufacturers to receive spare parts from local or close suppliers, thus the companies of the region, and the member companies of the North Hungary Automotive Cluster (NOHAC) have good chances to become suppliers or to strengthen their present positions.

NOHAC was founded at the end of 2006 with the participation of three Manager Suppliers, BOKIK, and the Innovation Management Cooperation Research Center of the University of Miskolc.  The goal of the cluster is to improve, by the alliance of the automotive suppliers of the region of North Hungary, their competitiveness, their innovation and profit-making ability and thus to bring its members closer to European car manufacturing and to the partners in the automotive industry.

After the foundation, several other companies have joined NOHAC, which now counts 77 members. Most of the members are metal and plastic machining companies, but we also include design offices, certification firms and other services companies. The number of employees employed by the member companies of the cluster exceeds 16,000, their revenue is close to € 2.4 billion and their export sales are over € 1.83 billion.
NOHAC is an Accredited Cluster since 2014.
