The Slovak branch of the French company maintained its position last year as one of the group's top-quality manufacturers, and became the main supplier of the Peugeot 207 model to the German market. The firm's manufacturing programme will feature the Peugeot 207 as its sole model until early 2009, when the company plans to launch new, as yet unnamed models. The Trnava plant employs 3,300 people, while its suppliers have taken on a similar number of staff.
