Korean investment company Hyunnam SK, which produces plastic moulds and noise protection materials for carmakers Kia and Hyundai, has lured in further investors, said Krásno  nad Kysucou Mayor Jozef Grapa, adding that more investors are starting to show interest.

"The industrial park has an excellent location; it's connected to the D3 motorway," said Grapa, as quoted by TASR. " There will be a flyover, and for commuters there will be a bus stop in the vicinity of the park."  

Hyunnam SK officially launched construction work on a new plant in Krásno  nad Kysucou in August 2014. The investment amounted to €12 million.

"They are now holding the first rounds of interviews for several dozen people who will be trained in the Czech Republic," Grapa said, adding that more than 2,000 people have already applied for jobs.
