Poprad-based white-goods manufacturer Whirlpool reported revenues of Sk7 billion (167 million euro) in 2002, with sales rising nearly 8 per cent year on year.
The company invested Sk605 million (14.5 million euro) in its Poprad operation last year, and expects to invest a further 25 million euro in 2003.
Whirlpool has a 44 per cent share of Slovakia's washing-machine market, although 82 per cent of its revenues are from foreign sales to 27 countries, mainly neighbouring Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic.
