Sloveca grabs W. European customers

Sloveca Inc., a Slovak-Italian company that produces tenzides, exported 80 percent of its goods abroad in 1996, with the majority of that destined for western Europe, company officials said. Some of Sloveca's main customers include Henkel, Unilever and Proctor & Gamble.

The company produced 19,000 tons of tenzide last year, a quarter more than in 1995, the firm's management said, adding they plan to up that figure to 23,000 tons this year. The overall capacity is 30,000 tons.
