Following a two-week stoppage at its Bratislava plant, car-maker Volkswagen Slovakia recommenced full production on Monday, August 9, the TASR newswire reported.

The company is continuing to hire new workers. Due to increased demand for the vehicles made at its Bratislava production facilities it plans to launch seven-days-a-week output as of September, for which it needs some 1,000 new employees. At the moment around 260 newly-created posts are still vacant, TASR reported Volkswagen Slovakia spokesman Vladimír Machalík as saying. He added that the company is seeking to employ people with a technical education, regardless of whether they have any experience in the automotive industry or not.
