Description

IBM Slovakia expands its business in Slovakia and establishes a new unit in Kosice. The company will create about 170 new jobs there until the end of 2013.

The company just started with the hiring of IT specialists and it is assumed that among them will be redundant employees of the Finish Ixonos company, which announced 122 redundancies in July (see here).

IBM Slovakia has asked for state aid supporting its infrastructure investment and the creation of new jobs.
