Disk plans to expand in Šahy

THE GERMAN company Disk, a producer of knitted articles, announced on May 12 its plans to build a new textile plant in Šahy, in the Nitra region. The investor has been active in the town for several years through its many smaller plants and currently employs around 130 people.

During the first stage, Disk will employ 180 more people at its new plant, while a further 220 new jobs will be created after production is expanded, TASR reported.

The company asked the Economy Ministry for a government subsidy to buy modern technology two years ago, but the money was not approved. Disk therefore postponed the construction date of its new plant in Šahy until today. "I think that the expanded level of production in Šahy and the creation of new jobs will now be realistic within three years," said Šahy Mayor Ján Lowy.
