Körmend town is known as one of the strongholds of the Hungarian basketball. The local team is a three times Hungarian champion and seven times Hungarian Cup winner, and a team with a long tradition. It has entered the court as Egis Körmend since 2014.
Egis established its production site in Körmend more than 50 years ago. Over these years Egis has become the town’s sole traditional, big employer. As a responsible company of regional significance, we consider the development of the town along with its initiatives, cultural and sport events of great importance.
The basketball team is one of Körmend’s primary source of pride; last year it was the second runner up of the incomplete season of the Hungarian Championship. In the spirit of its slogan ‘Health. Quality. Life.’, Egis supports the work of the red-black team in the current pandemic situation as well, and therefore further strengthens the cooperation between our company, the town and the team.
The agreement on cooperation was signed by dr. István Hodász, CEO of Egis and Ádám Hajba, manager of Egis Körmend.
