Especially in Slovakia and the surrounding regions, we have experience and a network to successful project implementation. Even small family businesses are motivated towards international expansion.
Within Europe, there has been an increasing division of labour between West and East. Because of the eastward expansion of the EU, new markets have been created along with new potential for manufacturing. Whatever your motivation for a new location in Central and Eastern Europe may be, we will gladly assist you with initial research and defining your ideal new location with the help of our experience and local contacts. We will support your analysis and show you the possibilities, differences and boundaries of the new market. Especially in Slovakia and the surrounding regions, we have experience and a network to successful project implementation.
Not every international business activity justifies its own site or branch. There are often upstream testing phases to research the market and assess the individual barriers to entry. Small businesses in particular can or want to limit their initial investments. If Slovakia is a potential new market or if you want to supervise other Central and Eastern European countries from Slovakia, take advantage of the geographical and strategic location of Wesconi.
When entering a new market, we offer:
- Find appropriate business premises and start up team
- Legal, tax and investment advice
- Administrative support (translations, bank dates, etc.)
A new site adds many opportunities but also some risks. At the regional level, international standards can be interpreted and implemented differently.
However, the final facility must not only meet current requirements, but should also provide a basis for future success.
When constructing a new production site, the foundation often determines whether the new production system can really manufacture in the micro range.
Typical questions in the construction and acquisition of facilities include:
- What floor load (per m2) should the new production area have?
- How much Lux should my lighting produce?
- How strong should the roof structure be?
- What crane load will my support structure support?
- Who will supply the power, and who is responsible for the transformer?
- What are the regional regulations concerning social spaces?
- Which regulatory approvals are required?
- and much more
Within Slovakia, Wesconi has many regional partners who can assist with all your questions and help you to realise your vision in a cost-effective manner. Regional features, such as ownership, soil conditions and regulatory provisions will be taken into account.
Whether environmental permit process, final building approval, or simply the right mixture of concrete for the foundation. Our interest lies in a functioning new location that meets the needs of its clients, investors and employees. We therefore offer also offer the security and credentials to fulfil the required quality standards in the end product, whether it be engine components, drive axles, pumps or steering elements.
Facility Relocation and Installation
The installation of a new system is often a major challenge. Sensitive technical components need to be carefully moved so that their function is not compromised. Despite heavy load, time pressure, and long distances, a quick start of the new production must be guaranteed.
The relocation of existing facilities can also be relatively difficult. Through year of use, settling adjustments occur on the old surfaces. Components that have never been moved are suddenly stressed and show wear from ageing.
However, the downtime should be as short as possible in order to ensure continued production and supply of customers.
In this regard, Wesconi also works with competent partners and can thus organise a fast and secure execution. Depending on the system type, the dismantling and transport up to the initial parts of the new production can be undertaken.
The SOP (start of production) proceeds within the scheduled deadlines. The client will continue to be supplied. This also applies to transport in Slovakia and the neighbouring regions. In particular, older systems that have already been written off can receive new life, because in the new manufacturing environment, there is a different cost structure, especially in the case of manual secondary activities.
