An engineering company called PPS Group in Detva, in the Banská Bystrica region, which laid off 180 people at the end of 2012, is taking some of them back on, PPS Group general director Pavol Šimkovič told the TASR newswire.

The company is set to hire 20 new workers in February. Before the redundancies took place, the company employed 1,500 people, most of them on full-time agreements. "More optimistic prospects of our clients are the reason for increasing the labour force again," said Šimkovič. PPS laid off some of its workforce at the end of 2012 due to a decline in the number of orders. The management at that time promised that the employees would be re-hired as soon as the situation improved. "Our expectations were met, and I'm happy to welcome back the … employees as early as this month," said Šimkovič.
