Dutch company Yssel Holcon announced its intention to build a new production plant in the village of Obid, close to Štúrovo (Nitra Region), in mid September 2015.

The company, focusing on processing steal and producing concrete and ferroconcrete pre-fabricates, plans to employ altogether 200 people in three industrial halls. The company plans to invest about €30 million, the Hospodárske Noviny reported.

Final products will be exported mostly to Germany and the Netherlands.

Part of the new complex should be also a concrete mixing plant. The company does not plan to ask for state aid.

“The company Yssel Holcon has not asked the Economy Ministry for investment aid yet,” the ministry told Hospodárske Noviny back in September.

The Yssel group has been active in Slovakia since 2007. Yssel Steel and its subsidiaries focus on producing and processing concrete steel. It has service centres in Palárikovo and Štúrovo, Hospodárske Noviny wrote.
