Companies operating in the Levice-Juh industrial park in Nitra Region employ a total of 2,507 people and 250 new jobs have been created over the past few months, the TASR newswire reported.
The new jobs were created mainly by LEAF Slovakia, ZF Sachs Slovakia (of Germany) and de Miclen (of Italy), Levice’s deputy mayor, Beata Vrábelová, told TASR.
Another Italian company, Gena Logistik, is planning to expand its activities in the park once it settles some legal disputes concerning property, Vrábelová said, adding that Italian-based Serioplast is projecting to hire an additional 60 people in the near future.
The Levice district reported about 9,600 job-seekers at the end of August with a jobless rate of 17.15 percent.
