Slovenia Business Week no. 10: New Twingo Hits Assembly Line at Revoz

Slovenian carmaker Revoz has launched the serial production of Renault's new model of the Twingo city car. Being the only Renault factory making the new model, the Novo mesto-based company expects the project will generate 300 new jobs.

According to Revoz's spokeswoman Renata Bele, the company currently produces 750 new Twingo and the Clio Storia models every day, with production running in three shifts. By introducing a full night shift, Revoz plans to increase production to 900 cars a day by May.

With the serial production of the new Twingo coming into full swing in June when the car is to go on sale in France and Slovenia, Revoz moreover expects it would have to expand its current working force of 2,700 with an additional 300 workers.
