Magna relocated to a much larger manufacturing facility in Slovakia thanks to the outstanding growth of its mirror manufacturing facility in Nove mesto nad Vahom. The company has plans to invest USD 30 million in order to refurbish the current building and to add a new automated paint line. The expansion of the plant is expected to create 150 new jobs at the plant.
The new plant will be almost double the size of the current facility. Magna has completed the move and is currently serving customers from its new location while the paint line is expected to become operational by early 2019.
Magna’s factory for mirrors in Slovakia was established over 20 years ago and currently has a workforce of 630 people. The factory specializes in the manufacture of components like puddle lights, turn signals and mirrors needed in vehicles like prismatic mirrors, electrochromic mirrors and interior mirrors. The products made at the plant are supplied to about 20 different customers and exported to over 80 locations across the globe. The factory was named a 2016 Best Place to Work in Slovakia.
Commenting on the investment, John O’Hara, president of Magna Mirrors congratulated the Slovteca team on their strong performance and asked them to continue the good work as they commenced operations at the new location.
