LAYER Kft. celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2012.
The company was founded by István Layer, who was partly following family traditions when he began his enterprise. The foundation of our activities was born in a small family enterprise selling water and gas fittings, founded in September of 1982 by István Layer and his father. Originally located in a 26 m2 wooden house, today – thanks to 30 years of dynamic growth – Layer Kft. comprises more than 20,000 m2 of industrial buildings, outlets, and logistics warehouses, providing for the efficient and successful operation of the company, as well as for the enterprises that have settled or are preparing to settle in the industrial park. Layer Kft. has grown to become a dominant construction company in the region.
OUR KEY PRINCIPLES:
- we provide high quality, efficient solutions
- customer-oriented, flexible attitude
- complex, high quality services at a single location, with sustainability an important consideration
(e.g. self-sustaining energy supply, use of renewable energy sources)
- practical and logical cooperation with our clients
The definitive tasks of the coming years and decades will be the integration of environmentally friendly, renewable energy sources into the company’s activities, while retaining the reputation for stability and reliability which Layer Kft. has earned over the last 3 decades.
