Additional Information

The Czechoslovak Group (CSG) will end production at its ZTS Metalurg plant in Dubnica nad Vahom by the end of June. The closure is attributed to the poor economic results and duplicate metallurgical capacities within the group. More than 110 employees will be dismissed, but some of them can get job in other companies of CSG in Slovakia and in Czechia. CSG is active in sales and production of military and special vehicles, ammunition, guns and gun systems, off-road cargo vehicles or engineering products for aviation, rail and automotive industries or break systems for rolling stock. CSG has nearly 8,000 employees and in 2017 its revenues amounted to CZK 25 billion (€975 million).
