Description

Electronics and electrical engineering company Siemens has announced plans to create 200 new jobs in its factory in Mohelnice. The creation of jobs is a result of a partial relocation of the production from Bad Neustad in Germany (please see Siemens-WO2013). Siemens currently employs about 2,400 people at the Mohelnice site where it produces low-voltage asynchronous motors. In 2012, the number of employees at the site increased by 200 (see Siemens-CZ2012). The company employs a total of 10,500 people in the Czech Republic. The timeline for the expansion plan is not yet available.
