Molex to take on more workers in 2001

Spokesman for the US firm Molex in eastern and central Europe Franz Vollman has said that Molex Slovakia will increase its workforce from the current 90 to 150 by May next year.
Vollman said that Molex expects that an agreement will be reached on infrastructure construction for a new factory and that Molex will have to keep to agreements on capital investment and providing jobs in the region.
Molex Slovakia launched production of connectors in April in provisional premises rented in Košice, and is waiting to complete construction of its factory in the village of Kechnec in the Košice district. Construction of the plant in Kechnec is part of a $75 million investment project which would see 600 jobs created over five years.


Miners and SE energy utility agree on coal

Hornonitrianske Bane Prievidza (HBP), a brown coal mining company, has reached agreement with power producer Slovenské elektrárne (SE) on coal supplies throughout 2000, staving off up to 1,500 redundancies.
SE has promised it will keep to terms of a previously signed contract and not reduce coal purchases by 400,000 metric tons as it had announced it would, said Miroslav Gazdik, head of the Trade Unions of Employees of Mines, Geology and Crude Oil Industry.
Under the agreement SE will buy 2.13 million metric tons of coal from HBP in 2000. The question of coal sales for next year remains to be settled and a meeting between unions and employers is scheduled for early December to discuss the matter.
