Factory closure after electricity price dispute

After failing to reach agreement on electricity prices, Cenon Strážke has brought forward reconstruction plans for its chemical works.

The firm had been negotiating with Energetika, a subsidiary of Chemka Strážske, the previous owner of Cenon. Cenon was taken over three years ago by Italian concern Gruppo Bonazzi.

The plant will be closed for 18 months, and 189 of the 211 jobs will be lost.
