Mevis expands in Slovakia

MEVIS, an Italian producer of metal and plastic components especially for the automotive industry, plans to join its two Slovak units and move them into a new plant in Šamorín. Its affiliate, Mevis Slovakia, has had a plant in Šamorín since 2006 when it took over a building of luggage-maker Samsonite after it had moved its production to Asia, eTrend, the electronic version of the Trend weekly, wrote in late April.

After the start of production in Šamorín, Mevis had about 50 employees and gradually invested about €10 million in the production unit. Three years ago the company started manufacturing in the second production unit in Galanta.

The company is now preparing a new project to unite its production in Slovakia in one place and increase capacity.

Because the current premises in Šamorín do not enable Mevis to expand any more, it decided to build a brand new plant in the local industrial park.

The Italians plan to invest in the new plant, with construction to finish in March 2015 at a cost of €12 million. The new plant should employ approximately 250 people.
