Description

Getrag Ford will create about 120 new jobs in Kehnec where it will establish a new logistic and service centre near its plant which manufactures gearboxes. About 300,000 of the modern "PowerShift" gearboxes will be produced at the plant annually from 2010 and therefore adequate space will be required for material entry, sorting and discharge of final products to customers. New investment will amount to Euro 30 million. "Getrag Ford investuje do logistiky".
