Mobis Slovakia wants to expand its production facilities to manufacture new types of products including electronic power steering systems and electric parking brake systems. It will invest more than €46 million into the extension of its existing factory near Žilina. The expansion should create nearly 190 new jobs.

The main customers of the new production will be Kia Motors Slovakia and Hyundai Motor Manufacturing in the Czech Republic, but only 10 percent of the new output will be exported.

Mobis Slovakia was set up in February 2004 in Gbeľany, Žilina Region.
