PSA Peugeot Citroen launches trial run

IN EARLY January, PSA Peugeot Citroen's car factory in Trnava launched a trial run of its assembly lines.

"We are currently assembling cars in order to test all facilities," Alain Baldeyrou, director of the Trnava PSA project, told the SITA news wire on February 21.

The trial run, in which the company has already produced dozens of cars, is to test quality and safety.

PSA plans to launch serial production at the end of the first half of 2006, and to reach full capacity in 2008.

In 2006 the plant should roll out 60,000 cars, increasing this to 240,000 units in 2007.

Most of the production will be exported, mainly to Austria, Slovenia and Italy.

PSA Peugeot Citroen's original intention was to invest €700 million in the plant. In December 2005, however, the company said it was increasing its investment by €357 million, and at the beginning of 2006 confirmed that the Trnava plant would manufacture the latest Peugeot 207 model.
