Under Biondo's three-year tenure, the car manufacturer became the first in Slovakia to produce vehicles with emissions under 100 g CO2/km. In 2009 the facility was the biggest car producer in Slovakia, when more than 200,000 vehicles rolled off the Trnava-based assembly line. In 2011, Peugeot Citroen produced its millionth car in Slovakia.
