New Jobs on the Horizon

The region with an almost 15% jobless rate, also known as starving valley, will have 120 new jobs thanks to car parts manufacturer Miba Sinter Slovakia. The new plant in the Mokrad industrial park will start making car components as soon as this year.
An investment worth six million euros and the creation of 80 new jobs over the next two years – these are the basic parameters of the project announced in the town of Michalovce in eastern Slovakia by the German company Michatek.
For the time being, Japanese company Akebono Brake Industry will create 85 jobs in its new plant in Trencin. Looking ahead, however, the investor is considering the implementation of the second stage of the project, in which it wants to add production of individual components, including machining and surface finishing. Overall, 200 jobs could thus arise.

In the first phase the company plans to give job to 70 people and a year later the plant will employ 120 people. The company will gradually open 300 direct jobs.
