One-thousand new jobs are to be created in Košice, Economy Minister Pavol Pavlis said at a news briefing in Košice on August 26. The company Howe Slovensko is to open some 600 positions and the limited liability company Airberlin Technik Slovakia is to gradually create 400 new jobs on the premises of the Košice airport. The investors are currently negotiating the provision of investment stimuli with the ministry.

Howe Slovensko wants to open a new plant focused on leather processing which should be located either in Immopark near the Košice airport, or in the industrial park near Veľká Ida, company’s CEO Richard Duda said, as quoted by the SITA newswire. “These are jobs that do not require any specialised training,” he said.

Production in the new plant should be launched next year. Investments in technological equipment are estimated at €3 million. Air Berlin is to open about 400 jobs in the first phase. The company is to open a new design centre on the premises of the Košice airport and to offer 40 new jobs already this year. In the second phase, it wants to establish a facility for the repair of air brakes and in the third phase to redesign the interiors of passenger planes. The investment cost is projected at €10-20 million.

Howe Slovensko, the Slovak subsidiary of the Australian producer of leather components for the automotive industry, will sew leather interiors for cars. Košice was competing for the investment with further three subsidiaries of the Australian firm that has also decided to relocate a plant for leather processing to Slovakia, the Hospodárske Noviny daily wrote. Howe has been operating in Slovakia for 10 years, without government incentives.
