Rheinmetall - The technology group with solutions for today. And for the future.
Who we are
The listed Rheinmetall AG, headquartered in Düsseldorf, is an internationally successful technology company in the markets for environmentally friendly mobility and modern security technology.
Rheinmetall, as a systems house for technology and security, was commissioned by the Ministry of Defence to manufacture the most modern tracked and wheeled vehicles and the associated services. As a result, a new production and test center is being built on an area of around 33 hectares in the Zala district.
The contract is expected to create 350 new jobs at Rheinmetall Hungary Zrt. in Zalaegerszeg in the coming years.
Rheinmetall and the Hungarian defence programme „Zrínyi 2026“
Rheinmetall is set to play an important role in the Hungarian „Zrínyi 2026“ initiative, which focuses on modern equipment for the armed forces. Hungary is now the first NATO and EU member state to procure the German manufacturer's newly developed Lynx infantry fighting vehicle. This major success marks Rheinmetall's breakthrough with this new, innovative combat vehicle for global markets.
Rheinmetall has been commissioned by the Hungarian Ministry of Defence to supply tracked vehicles and related services worth over €2 billion. The contract comprises 218 Lynx KF41 infantry fighting vehicles and 9 Bergepanzer 3 Büffel/Buffalo armoured recovery vehicles. The contract also includes other services such as simulators, education and training, as well as an initial supply of spare parts and maintenance services. Over the expected decades of use of the Lynx, spare parts will be required and maintenance will be necessary to keep the vehicles operational.
In a first production phase, Hungary will receive 46 Lynx infantry fighting vehicles and 9 Bergepanzer 3 Büffel/Buffalo armoured recovery vehicles made in Germany, with deliveries to be completed by early 2023. In a second phase, 172 additional Lynx vehicles will be produced in Hungary in a joint venture with a domestic partner company.
I worked in the defence sector before, where Rheinmetall is one of the biggest names. I first heard about the company in 2018 at my previous job. There, I had the opportunity to get to know several companies within the defence industry. The community was very friendly and welcoming everywhere, but I think Rheinmetall's objectives in Hungary are the closest to my professional goals. Therefore, it wasn't a difficult question when the opportunity to join came up.
Being an engineer with experience in the defence industry is quite rare in Hungary, although it is absolutely not an expectation, I think it helped me a lot to get in. The integration process was very easy, thanks to the staff and the attention the company paid to creating a friendly working environment from the very beginning.
I am the head of the Export Control Department in Hungary. The day-to-day work is very varied, we don't work with a well-established system that just has to be maintained, but the process itself has to be planned and then implemented. I am very motivated to see this "big machine" finally start up.
Rheinmetall is constantly coming up with new ideas, products and expansion opportunities in Hungary. In addition to the many exciting opportunities within the group, I can also sense a supportive attitude from the management. Everything is there for a good career.
I signed my contract with Rheinmetall a year ago, working as a Project Manager in the Operations unit. I am responsible for the preparation, management, and follow-up of the production activities, as well as the start-up and operation of the factory after the handover - together with the Operations team.
I heard about the centre being built in the ZalaZone through a friend. I was not at all daunted by the fact that it was a completely new company in Hungary, in fact I had the ambition to be involved in the creation of a completely new factory in a greenfield investment.
After the recruitment process, I had a 7.5 month training in Germany, where I was given an insight into the life and operations of the factory in Unterlüß. It was also a great opportunity to meet my future colleagues back home, who are a pleasure to work with, with their great atmosphere and professionalism. The positive and people-oriented selection process at the company also plays a significant role in creating the right team composition.
For me, this job is a real adventure with constant change. During my time in Germany, I have also developed as a person, learning a lot about dealing with people, alongside my professional skills.
My current goal is to prepare the new factory under construction to meet production needs and start it on time, but I also see many exciting opportunities within the company, including working abroad. It has been a big leap in my personal life to work for Rheinmetall, which involved a lot of travelling and moving, but I feel it was a good choice.
