Brother Industries, a British-Japanese company, decided to invest around EUR 3 million in southern Slovakia, where unemployment rate is high. According to Soňa Junasová, the Public Relation's representative of the Slovak Agency for Development of Investment and Trade (SARIO), the new investor plans to operate in the premises of the previous local diary shop in Krupina. After reconstruction of the premises, toners for business machines will be produced there. Used toners will be recycled there, too. As a result, more than 250 new jobs will be created there by the end of 2010. The production is planned to be launched in the first half of 2007. Almost all products will be exported to Western and Central European markets.
