The production is expected to be kept at this level for a period of six weeks, from January 11 to February 19, 2010. The Trnava-based plant increased its production temporarily already once this year, from June until the end of October. Švec explained that the company still feels the positive effects the car scrapping bonus in several European countries, for example, in Germany and in Italy.

In late December, the plant will stop production for two weeks. Assembly lines will stop on December 22 and will be put back into operation on January 4. The plant will have its winter break even though the company has registered an increase in orders by more than 20 percent. SITA
