Minebea to invest Sk120 million in Slovakia

THE JAPANESE company Minebea announced that it would invest Sk120 million (€30 million) in Slovakia to run a plant to produce alphabet imprints on computer keyboards in the Bratislava district of Rača.

The Slovak daily Pravda wrote that the project would create 60 new jobs in its initial stage and later add another 100 jobs.

The company will start production in August and plans to produce 0.5 million keyboard imprints a month.

Daishiro Konomi, the company's general director for Europe, said that Minebea might consider moving another operation, currently based in Germany, to the central European state if the Slovak operation proved successful.

The German operation produces roller bearings for airplanes and employs 280 people.

If it were moved to Slovakia, it would be in the area of Martin, Lučenec, or Prešov, said Roman Kuruc, the head of the Slovak investment and trade agency.
