More than 100 jobs to go as Coca-Cola plant in Slovakia closes

The Coca-Cola Company announced its plan to close down a manufacturing facility in the western Slovakia. As a result, more than 100 workers will lose their job by the end of the first quarter next year. 


The factory located within the Trnava Region near a town of Piestany has been part of the company for more than 20 years.

All production lines will be dismounted by late March and moved to Austria. A decision that will throw about 100 people in the western part of the country out of a job by The Coca-Cola Company is allegedly carrying out a cost-cutting effort by closing the smallest facility in the area. There are six other operational Coca-Cola plants within a 350-kilometer radius.

Storage and logistics part of the Slovak subsidiary’s facility will be in service until the end of the next year.
