Porsche invested €13.59 million through its daughter company Porsche Werkzeugbau (which already has a production plant in Dubnica nad Váhom) to build a technological centre for the automation and robotisation of the automotive industry in the municipality of Horná Streda, near the western-Slovak town of Piešťany. The centre is projected to employ 34 people. The Economy Ministry proposes granting the German carmaker €2 million as investment stimuli.

The Mühlbauer group, which also has a production plant in Slovakia, wants to spend €12 million on building a technological centre in the south of Slovakia, to provide R&D support. The facility should employ 70 people. The ministry proposes stimuli of €3 million for the project.

Both investors are planning their new projects in regions with lower-than-average unemployment rate, ČTK noted.
