The industrial park (Juh) in Lučenec was expanded on November 13, as Banská Bystrica regional (VÚC) and municipal representatives officially opened a newly-built 6.2 hectare site, with representatives of Slovakia's foreign investment agency SARIO also in attendance.

According to Lučenec Mayor Milan Marko, the town already has some investors under contract and is in talks with more, which are mostly companies manufacturing building materials.

The already-contracted Milenium Trading is reportedly set to build a Sk600-million (€19.9 million) plastics waste treatment plant and is considering asking the European Union for grant funding. By the end of 2009 it plans to hire 45 people. Also under contract is Parkon Spol. It has undertaken to build a Sk150 million (€4.979 million) biogas-fired power plant and also wants to finance the project through EU funds. Despite being fully automated, it will hire several people.

The industrial park Juh is one of 12 projects that received EU backing between 2004-2006. The park's earlier built portion provides a site for auto components maker Johnson Controls (US) and furniture company Jackuliak. TASR
