Novares Group has officially inaugurated a new, 9,600 m2 second building at its site in Janovice, Czech Republic, in the presence of Industry Ministry officials, customers and the international media.

The Janovice site supplies parts to automotive customers Skoda and Faurecia, and the new building will produce components for Groupe PSA, as activities are transferred from Novares’ site in Zavar, Slovakia.

The factory is part of Novares’ German OEMs & Tier 1 Business Unit, which supplies parts to major Europe-based and global automotive Customers. The new building houses a range of new, state-of-the-art injection moulding machines and moulds for plastic car part production.

The inauguration was also an opportunity for Novares to display its latest innovative technologies, in the form of its open innovation lab, the Nova Car 2 demonstration vehicle, which incorporates 25 of the company’s latest innovations. The car was revealed in Paris on June 25.

The new building, begun in April 2018 and completed a year later, has increased the area of the Janovice site to 16,500 m2, with the number of employees now totalling 480 and planned to increase to 530 by the end of the year.

“The new building is a major extension to the plant, more than doubling capacity at the site, allowing us to serve new Customers using the latest industrial equipment and technologies. Janovice is a key plant in Novares’ European network and an impressive showcase of our industrial strength in automotive car-part manufacturing,” said Pierre Boulet, CEO of Novares.
