Production of pressed parts is slated to start in late 2013, with daily output projected to be 19,000 parts. According to the head of the press shop, Dietmar Neels, VW Slovakia has just started recruiting new staff, skilled toolmakers and servicemen with five years’ professional experience and education in the engineering or electro-technical fields. The facility will have one of the best presses in central and eastern Europe, and will process steel and aluminium sheets into car body panels, bonnets, roofs, bumpers and doors.
