“Iveco Czech Republic is one of the nation’s top manufacturers. It is a major employer in the region with over 3,000 employees and provides an additional 1,700 jobs with the sub-contractors. Iveco Czech Republic is continuously investing in its industrial facilities and has more than doubled its production within the past 10 years,” said Sylvain Blaise during the event.
President Zeman also toured the industrial facilities, met with employees and got a close-up look at the complete Iveco Bus product line-up. The line-up included the Urbanway city bus and the Crossway intercity bus (the most successful intercity range on the European market), both produced in Vysoké Mýto.
