IN SHORT

Serial production launched in PSA

SERIAL production has already been launched in PSA Peugeot Citroen's newly built car assembly plant in Trnava, western Slovakia.

The plant manufactured 1,000 cars in June to be supplied throughout Europe. Its director general, Alain Baldeyrou, said coordination with the company's factories in Poissy and Madrid should ensure reliable and smooth production, but pointed out there's more to the equation.

"A smooth production process requires that all suppliers be able to deliver orders to the Trnava plant in time," he said.

Baldeyrou also said that all key Slovak professionals who will manage production in Trnava underwent training in French companies.

PSA currently employs over 2,400 people. The plant should employ more than 3,000 people by the end of August when it starts two-shift operation.
