The total volume of the two investments should be €9.5 million, with investors aiming to create about 300 new jobs in total.

The town has secured almost Sk93 million (€2.9 million) from EU structural funds and from the state budget for the construction of infrastructure for the industrial park. And last June the town signed an agreement with SARIO, which provided for a grant.
