Heavy snowfalls did not halt production at VSŽ

Despite the heaviest snowfalls since 1986 and the collapse of the local transportation system in eastern Slovakia, Slovakia's largest industrial company, steel maker VSŽ, did not interrupt production during the February 10-13 blizzards.

VSŽ press representative Iveta Faltanová told the media that supplementary transport had brought many of VSŽ's 25,000 employees in to work from their homes in villages around VSŽ's Košice factories.

Once at work, however, VSŽ employees faced many difficulties returning home because of the two metres of snow that lay on the roads in some rural districts.
