Under the leadership of Biondo, the carmaker was the first in Slovakia to start producing cars with emissions below 100g CO2/km. In 2009 the carmaker also became the biggest car producer in Slovakia when it manufactured over 200,000 cars.

“Under his leadership the plant kept the leading position in quality, while it keeps achieving some of the best results within the PSA group in this term,” said Valová, adding that with the launch of the Peugeot 208 model the plant confirmed its focus on the production of cars with low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
