AN IMPORTANT employer in Nitra Region has announced it is leaving Slovakia.

FlexMedical, a Vráble-based producer of medical supplies, announced that as of next June it will move production to Romania, the Hospodárske Noviny daily wrote on November 21.

“We will move production to our Romanian plant, the European Medical Centre of Excellence located in Timisoara,” the company announced in a letter sent to its suppliers, the daily reported.

One of its reasons for leaving Slovakia was the good results of the Romanian plant, which the company said would help it to compete in the eastern Europe region.

According to reports published by the SITA newswire, all 250 FlexMedical employees will lose their jobs.

Though representatives of the company have yet to officially announce mass layoffs, employees of the labour office in Vráble are in contact with them, saying that at the moment, the company is preparing a special programme to help the employees find new jobs.
