This represents the revitalisation and versatility of the region, which can result in more jobs,” says Tomas Lacina, director of CzechInvest´s regional office in Ostrava, adding:“In the first phase, the company wants to employ approximately 60 people. If the factory is successful, it is possible that the number of employees will increase to up to 100.”

“The factory will present a range of opportunities for Czech suppliers in the region with which the investor has already established contacts. Most products will be intended for export,” says Filip Cerny, CzechInvest project manager.

“Land prepared for investment within the Nove Pole industrial zone in Karvina offers a quick start for every investor targeting its products at Central European markets. Thanks to long-term cooperation with CzechInvest, we are creating favourable conditions and supporting investments for new local and foreign investors,” says Tomas Hanzel, Deputy Mayor of Karvina.
