THE JAPANESE Sony company intends to invest Sk2.7 billion (€73 million) in a new plant for the production of LCD television sets in Nitra, where it will employ 3,000 people, the company announced yesterday.
The plant's production capacity will be 3 million television sets per year.
Test production will begin in September 2007, and full operation should start in 2008.
Sony has been making television sets for a decade now at its existing plant in Trnava. This plant will be shut down and its 1,500 workers will be offered new jobs at the Nitra plant.
