Trnava-based carmaker PSA Groupe Slovakia, will soon start recruiting new staff.

Since the plant is preparing for the launch of the construction of new engines, it needs to hire 500 new employees, said the head of the carmaker Stéphane Bonhommeau, as reported by the Trend weekly.

The PSA Groupe Slovakia will start producing the 3-cylinder EB Turbo PureTech petrol engines in 2019. It will be the first plant to go into production outside France and this demonstrates the trust that the Trnava branch is now given by its parent company. It launched the production of the new Citroën C3 last autumn, the Sme daily reported.
