Talks start for new industrial park in Spišská Nová Ves

Talks are being held to attract the first major investors for a new industrial park at Spišská Nova Ves located in Slovakia's Košice region, news wire TASR wrote.

Interested parties include CRW and Tade, plastics makers from Brazil and Spain respectively, as well as the French producer of automotive plastic ducts, WESTAFLEX. SWEP, the Swedish producer of heat exchangers and an unnamed Israeli maker of building materials and glues have also expressed interest.

The companies are expected to confirm their decision to invest within two or three months, the industrial park's director Zdenko Jackovič said.

CRW and Tade would set up as sub-contractor for the local Brazilian-owned refrigerator maker Embraco.

The Israeli investor is interested in the quality of raw material found in the area.
