The Hungarian market has been one of Unger Steel Group's core markets for a long time.  Approximately three decades ago Unger, as a flexible family business, began its expansion into Hungary and established its first international market there, before branching out to other new global markets.

The production plant in Oberwart is located only about 15 km from the border. Unger has realized a variety of projects in steel and general contracting throughout Hungary for many domestic and international clients. In 2015, a Hungarian subsidiary was opened with Unger Steel Kft., in Budapest.

Previous clients include, among others, Gebrüder Weiss, Wienerberger, Nestle, Leier, Becom and Flextronics. The general contracting department has also been very successful in the Hungarian market and was able to implement large-scale projects of more than 10,000 m².
The Unger Steel Group only last year finished a 12,700 m² project for the German Edelmann Group as general contractor. At the moment, the steel department is realising a project for new client Wuppermann Hungary Kft., with approximately 3,500 tons of steel being processed.
Hungary has been and remains one of the most important core markets of the Unger Steel Group.
