Construction on the plant, which will manufacture car components for the car industry, is due to begin in June and is expected to be completed by September.

Pankl Automotive plans to employ 240 people working in three shifts. The investor has obtained land from the town of Topoľčany, which plans to create an industrial zone in the area.

The Topoľčany plant is expected to produce parts worth €4 million per year.
