ONE OF the world’s biggest steel giants, ThyssenKrup based in Germany, will reportedly open a new plant in Prešov, the Hospodárske Noviny daily wrote, with employment estimated at 1,200 people.

The spokesperson for Prešov mayor Veronika Gazdová did not confirm any information but did admit that there are ongoing negotiations between the city’s representatives and an unnamed company.

ThyssenKrup clusters almost 700 firms across the globe and employs about 180,000 people.

Hospodárske Noviny wrote that the firm could be attracted to Slovakia by possible cooperation with Honeywell, which has established a facility in Prešov’s industrial park, or by Volkswagen, to which Thyssen-Krup currently supplies auto components.
