The Hospodárske Noviny daily reported on Thursday, January 17, that EII produces security systems for cars at its plant in nearby Kechnec, where it currently employs 500 people. After an investment worth €5.5 million, it will produce sensors for safety belts and for child seats in cars. EII has not officially confirmed its intention to build a new factory; but the daily wrote that reports that developer PointParkProperties SK (P3) was preparing construction of a new plant for Ell had been confirmed by two sources. The SITA newswire wrote on January 14 that an investment plan had been filed with state institutions assessing the environmental impacts of the potential production plant.
