The new analytical research centre is of great significance. The Deputy Secretary of State for food safety, Dr Lajos Bognár, pointed out: “Reliable expertise enables us to make the right decisions and act accordingly.” For twenty-four years WESSLING’s experts have supported their customers with reliable expertise and so helped them to make well-informed decisions on environmental, food safety and health issues. Moreover, the scientific, fact-based methods for food safety, risk assessment and management systems will gain a significant role over the coming years.
The WESSLING Knowledge Center, in Budapest, is the new location for experts to develop new methods and realise international projects for the environmental and food safety sector. They are focussed on a continual improvement in the quality of life. This way, the company’s second generation does not only continue the close international cooperation of all its locations, but also provides for engineers and scientists a permanent know-how transfer, which was already supported by Dr Erwin Weßling during the founding period.

In addition to analytical services, the new Knowledge Center will serve to strengthen the role of WESSLING Group in research and development. The Knowledge Center will closely cooperate with Budapest’s Eötvös Loránd University and the Szent István University of Gödöllő. “The Knowledge Center’s investment leads us to expect that the current number, of 250 engineers and scientists, will increase by thirty percent”, so explained Diana Weßling, representative and shareholder of the family-owned company, the long-term planning.
