MORE than 1,400 people were laid off from a factory in Voderady, near Trnava, owned by Hansol, a Korean producer of components for television sets, the Hospodárske Noviny daily reported.

“Our company terminated production of back lights and LCM panels on August 31 because of a long-term adverse situation in world markets,” said Ján Mikuláš, the firm’s PR specialist, as quoted by the daily.

Miroslava Navrátilová from the Trnava labour inspectorate office told the daily that her office had not received any complaints about the layoffs and the labour office located in Trnava reported that it did not know about any mass layoffs and registered only 103 people who had previously worked for the company.

The facility opened in 2007 to produce components for the nearby Samsung factory. Mikuláš announced that the company plans to stay in Slovakia but will focus on different products, according to Hospodárske Noviny.
