BUSINESS SHORTS

Prievidza industrial park lacks tenants

THE INDUSTRIAL park in Prievidza is still empty almost one year after its completion.

"A contract has been signed with one partner, the Austrian company Rubig," town council spokeswoman Ivona Vojtášová told the SITA newswire.

The company has delayed construction of its production facility because it is technologically complex. It will probably start construction at the beginning of next year.

However, Vojtášová is not concerned that the town might fail to fill the industrial zone with investors. She said that the next two potential investors will announce their intentions by the end of October.

The park is expected to create jobs for about 1,500 people.

Investment in the 52-hectare industrial park amounted to Sk380 million (€11.3 million) - Sk170 million for the land purchase and Sk210 million for constructing the infrastructure. The Town of Prievidza got a state subsidy of almost Sk151 million for the park's infrastructure.
