SG Automotive is a producer of electronic components and wire harnessing for the automotive industry. The company is located in Slovenske Konjice in the Savinjska region. In the last quarter of 2008 the company faced a 20% reduction in orders, which increased to a 40% reduction in the first months of 2009.
