At a ČIANEWS enquiry, this information was provided by the Korean company’s manager Petr Pospíšil who added that the company planned the shell construction to be completed by the end of 2017 and the production to begin roughly in mid-2018. When production begins, roughly 200 to 300 people will work in the plant, while the company would like to employ up to 1,500 people within six years from the production start. The target capacity for the first stage of the plant construction is up to 30,000 tyres a day.
