BUSINESS BRIEFS

Trenčín welcomes Johnson Controls

US producer of automotive components Johnson Controls will open a production centre in the western Slovak city of Trenčín on October 1.

The centre will manufacture seats and interior components, employing initially 60 people and eventually between 550 and 600, said Dieter Vandreike, JC's production manager in Slovakia.

JC already has a production plant at Lozorno, 30km north of Bratislava.

The factory will begin production at the temporary premises of the former engineering factory TOS and later move to a new facility in the planned Trenčín industrial park.

JC plans to invest some Sk800-850 million (over €20 million) in the centre.
