Description

Bukoza Invest, a part of the larger Bukoza Holding, the Slovak producer of cellulose, announced its plans to expand its production by 150 thousand tonnes annually, essentially doubling its current production. The expansion requires the creation of 150 novel jobs at the main production plant in Hencovce located in East Slovakia.

The hires will be completed in July 2023 and will be mainly in manufacturing positions.

The total investment is €90 million. To adress potential environmental issues, the company has followed European standards  and enlarged its sewage treatment plant and filtration facilities.
