The expansion would mean the Italian maker of micro-components for the automotive industry would thereby increase production at its factory from the current 178,000 to 720,000 items annually. Ninety percent of these products are intended for export. Project implementation should start in late 2008, with completion planned for the end of 2009. Expansion of production should be completed in the second quarter of 2011. According to the proposal, the average monthly wage in the factory would be Sk23,675 (€785.87).

The Italian firm Brovedani has been operating in Slovakia since 2004. It currently employs about 100 people.
