Carmaker PSA Peugeot Citroën is beginning its sixth year of production in Slovakia. Company spokesperson Ivana Pavelková said that during its five years of manufacturing there, the company’s Trnava plant has become the most modern in the whole PSA group, the TASR newswire reported.

“It was partly thanks to the factory’s excellent reputation that the concern chose Trnava as the sole place to start making a new car model – the Citroën C3 Picasso,” Pavelková said, as quoted by TASR.

The company plans to produce another model at the plant, and make an investment that should provide nearly 800 new jobs in 2012.

PSA Peugeot Citroën currently employs 3,000 people. In 2010 the company produced around 187,000 new cars.
