Senica industrial park attracts new investors

AN INDUSTRIAL park in the town of Senica in western Slovakia has attracted foreign investors from France and Mexico, as well as Slovak investors, Senica Mayor Ľubomír Parízek reported.

The French company Haironwille, which specializes in the production of metal sheets, plans to open a plant in Senica and create around 60 new jobs. Construction of the plant should begin before the end of 2006.

An agreement with the Mexican Seisa, which produces medical instruments, especially for cardio-surgery, is also to be signed shortly.

"This company will employ another 350 people," Parízek said.

Meanwhile, Slovak glass producer Terraton plans to hire 200 employees within the park, while construction materials producer Bau-rent, also from Slovakia, will employ another 100 people.

The municipality is currently negotiating with another French investor - Plastic Solution, a producer of plastic parts for the automotive industry - on opening a new plant in Senica.
