THE SLOVAK branch of Volkswagen is finalising preparatory works for construction of a new pressing shop that will specialise in the manufacture of car bodies at its Bratislava automobile production complex.

The new investment is valued at €85 million and will create around 100 new job positions, the SITA newswire reported.

“The pressing shop will allow us to broaden the depth of the production of vehicles made at our plant,” said Andreas Tostman, the chairman of the board of Volkswagen Slovakia, as quoted by SITA.

“It will help to reduce the time for circulation of materials and therefore costs,” he added.

Actual construction of the pressing facility is planned to start in the second half of 2011 and it is expected to start production in the third quarter of 2013.

The facility will cover an area of over 19,000 square metres.
