Additional Information

AK Automotive, the Turkish car-manufacturing company, expands its production in the city of Koper; as a result, 150 workers will be hired. The reason for expansion is the proximity of their buyers (Mercedes, Renault, Toyota) and lower expenses for logistics.

AK Automotive started its activities in Slovenia in 2018. The company manufactures safety mechanism products: pedal boxes, hinge groups and hand brakes.
