Peugeot Citroën not building second plant in Trnava

FRENCH carmaker Peugeot Citroën has confirmed that it will not build a second plant in the western Slovak town of Trnava as originally planned.

The firm decided to scrap the plan in order to save money, the Sme daily wrote.

Instead of building the new plant, which was expected to cost €357 million, the carmaker has decided to increase capacity at its existing plant in Slovakia.
