Due to strong industry, the success of privatization and increased interest of foreign capital, Fejér county's economy - with the support by the Chamber - has achieved significant growth in a short period of time. The county's economy was strong before the transition years as well. This was partly due to the former allocation of industry. Four of the industrial "flagships" of the state socialism was operating here: Videoton with electronic profile, Köfém engaged in aluminum industry, the Ikarus bus factory and the ironworks Dunai Vasmű. This was the base for the later investments of foreign capital. In the first stage the main attraction of the area was high-volume low-cost, skilled labour capable of and used to rapid technological changes. In addition to the existing plants, the most serious attraction was the portfolio of highly skilled engineers and professionals that had become available because of liquidation of the big companies.
