The need to increase production capacity, coupled with rising demand for LCD TV sets in European markets were behind the company's decision to move production from Trnava, where the company has limited space. The company expects its investment in Slovakia to boost production in Europe.

The factory in Nitra will serve, together with a Barcelona-based operation, as the chief supplier of BRAVIA LCD sets to the European market.

Sony plans to produce three million LCD screens and employ 3,000 people at its Nitra plant in 2008.
