Two more investors arrive in Spiš

EMBRACO, the Brazilian producer of compressors for cooling devices, has attracted two new investors to Spišská Nová Ves, in Eastern Slovakia.

The Italian producer of parts for electro-engines, Sitem Slovakia, and Brazilian plastics producer CRW, will invest Sk350 million (€9.22 million) and Sk300 million (€7.9 million) respectively in Spišská Nová Ves, the daily Pravda wrote.
