Description

Belgian company LVD S2 has been operating in Tornala, Slovakia, for ten years. Recently the company management decided to extend its engineering production facilities in Slovakia. It will invest in new technology and is planning to create around 100 new jobs in its unit in Tornala. This is a great news for the micro region, where the unemployment rate has been very high for a long time, of around 26%. Production in the new unit is expected to start in around one year.
