The company is renting the plant from Immo Industry Group (IIG) and its Slovak partner J&T Real Estate, which constructed it. IIG has not disclosed the volume of investment in the new plant. Construction of the new premises began at the end of August and the plant currently employs 27 people.

The plant has an area of 1,900 square metres. Office premises cover 150 square metres. “The project for Plastic Omnium is an example of how it is possible on a small area to reach high effectiveness and productivity,” stated IIG CEO Radovan Brtiš.
