THE JAPANESE company Takenaka Europe is set to begin construction on a new plant for assembling LCD television sets at the Nitra-Sever industrial park in Nitra in December.

Total costs are projected at Sk1.8 billion (€47.9 million). Production is due to begin in August, 2007. According to the investment plan, the company should employ 3,800 people.
The company plans to build the plant in two phases, extending from a TV production site to a facility for the production of video appliances. Planned production should reach 5 million LCD television sets per year.
