PSA abandoned plans for new engine plant in Trnava
French car maker PSA has abandoned its plans for building a new engine plant in Trnava that was to create 500 new jobs, according to sources of aktuality.sk. The PSA management is reconsidering all its activities after the recent takeover of German car maker Opel. The reasons for shelving the engine plant might include a labor shortage in Trnava, as well as the EU initiatives potentially leading to the ban on diesel engines. Petrol engines were to be made in Trnava, but French diesel engine factories would remain idle if the EU moves in that direction.
