Korean car parts maker to locate production in Slaskie


SL, a globally active Korean manufacturer of automotive components, plans to build a factory of plastic car parts in Zory (Slaskie voivodship), regional daily Dziennik Zachodni has learnt.

The plant will reportedly employ more than 500 workers, of which about 80% will be women. It will make components such as plastic transmission gear or lamp system parts, and its main customers will be the auto factories of Ford, Hyundai or Kia in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

SL is in the process of obtaining necessary administrative permits, and expects that construction work will begin in March 2013. The facility could start operations within two years.

SL would not be the first Hyundai/Kia supplier from Korea to locate production in Zory. The town is already home to plants of Korea Fuel Tech or Nifco.
