Roechling Automotive, a German components supplier for the automotive industry, opened a new plant in Kočovce, near Nové Mesto nad Váhom (Trenčín Region) in mid July. Through this investment, the automotive division of Roechling Group wants to satisfy the increased demand for new technologies and expand its warehouse and production premises. The ambition of the company is to employ 240 people.

The company arrived in Slovakia in 2017. It is involved in the production of plastic components for the automotive industry.

“The main reason why we’ve arrived in Slovakia and built a new plant here is the presence of significant carmakers in the region,” said its director Vladimír Lopušniak. “We currently employ 80 people, and our goal is to find 120 employees by the end of next year.”
