A new factory for the company SSI Technologies s.r.o. has been under construction in the town of Přestanov in the Ústí nad Labem district since the end of April 2015. The US-based company is a manufacturer of magnetic sensors, pressure and depth sensors, monitoring systems and digital pressure gauges for the automotive and mechanical-engineering industries. The new Czech operation will employ approximately 120 people in the first phase.
The new buildings, which will comprise 3,515 m2 of production space and 1,821 m2 of offices, will be constructed in VGP Park Ústí nad Labem by the end 2015.
“This is our first production plant outside the United States,” said Frank Jassner, operations manager at SSI Technologies s.r.o. “There were many reasons why we chose the Czech Republic, specifically Ústí nad Labem, including both access to our customers and connections to the main transit routes and airports. The availability of workers also played an important role in our selection of the location.”
The entry of SSI Technologies into the Czech Republic was supported by CzechInvest.
