Full production for Sony in March

The Japanese company Sony, an electronics manufacturer, will invest 194 million Sk this year and 120 million Sk next year into its Trnava plant, company representatives said. While Sony began producing TV set components this August at its Trnava plant - the multinational's first in the former East bloc - it plans full operations for March, 1997. The first products were evaluated as high-quality, so Sony is contemplating moving other production or assembly lines to Slovakia. Presently, Sony Slovakia employs 150 people, with that figure expected to grow to 3,090 by the end of this year. Future production extension could swell the employee total another 700 - 1,000.
