Johnson Controls may move CEE headquarters

THE US car parts maker Johnson Controls may move its headquarters for Central and Eastern Europe from Germany to Bratislava.

Economy Ministry spokesman Branislav Zvara said that if the move takes place, it would create 300 jobs in IT, human capital, finance and supply fields. Johnson Controls has already met Deputy Economy Minister Peter Žigo on the possibility of providing investment stimuli.

So far, Johnson Controls has five plants for making plastic components and one engineering centre in Slovakia, employing 2,100 people. In 2006 the company was given Sk728 million (€20.7 million) in state aid for projected developments in Lučenec and Trenčín.
