Coca-Cola leaving Slovakia

The management of the Coca-Cola plant in the village of Lúka near Piešťany told its employees that the factory is to be closed down as of March 31 of next year. Thus, more than 110 local employees will become unemployed.

All production lines will be dismantled by late March and moved to Austria, one of the employees cited the director for the Sme daily. Until the end of next year, the company will still use stores and then it will leave the whole complex for good. The alleged reason for the closure is the presence of six other production plants within 330 kilometres from Lúka – in the Czech Republic, Austria, Poland and Hungary, the source told Sme, adding that the smallest, i.e. the Slovak plant, was chosen.
