Attracted by the strategic location near car-makers PSA Peugeot Citroen and Volkswagen Slovakia, British car components supplier TI Automotive has begun constructing a new plant in the industrial park in Trnava.

"PSA Peugeot Citroen group is our very important client," TI Automotive Trnava plant director Oliver Garaj told SLOVAKIA on March 27. So far, component parts for PSA Peugeot Citroen have been imported from the Czech Republic and the new plant will mean reduced logistics costs.

In the first stage, which should begin in August, the plant will produce brake cable systems, and wire bundles for cars produced by PSA. TI Automotive will create some 50 new jobs in Trnava. Later, the production should include also fuel pipes, and wire bundles for other carmakers, representatives of the new plant's developer Immo Industry Group and J&T Real Estate told SLOVAKIA. TASR
