Vihorlat gets new Dutch owner

The Dutch firm Cebuwa, with minority partner Hubertus of Slovakia, has taken over bankrupt machinery firm Vihorlat of eastern Slovakia’s Snina. Having paid Sk220 million for Vihorlat’s assets, the new owners now intend to aim production towards the automotive sector and increase labour productivity to save the 1,000 jobs remaining at Vihorlat.
