Foxconn Slovakia

     The company Foxconn Slovakia has been on the Slovak market since July 2010, however, the beginnings of its operation get back to the 90s of the last century when the company Sony (a predecessor of Foxconn Slovakia) launched production in Trnava.

     The Technology Centre Trnava has done lots of activities since its opening in 1996: the production of television sets, service of PlayStation game consoles for Europe, but also the production of the components for televisions (deflection coils, high-voltage transformers, printed circuit boards, electron guns).

     The company started as a dynamic team of young people with a typical high work-assignment and flexibility. These attributes have brought success of the Technology Centre Trnava (the official name of the Sony plant) and at the same time they have formed the conditions for growth of the volume of production and number of employees up to the stage when the company Sony needed a new, bigger production plant to cover the permanently growing demand on the European market.   

     Therefore Sony decided to extend their production capacities and to open new production premises in the Industrial Park North in Nitra. The newly established plant started production of LCD televisions BRAVIA in October 2007.  Sony continued with  the assembly of LCD televisions, extended the departments of automated and manual assembly and top technology centres in the area of engineering in their new premises. 

     The Sony Distribution Centre, which provided logistic services for LCD televisions within Europe, moved to the Industrial Park in 2008. In the time of its biggest growth this plant was employing about 4 500 employees until the impacts of the financial crisis affected it partially in 2009. 

Foxconn Slovakia - Reception

     The development on the world market in the period of fading of the economic crisis predetermined a significant change in the direction of the company. In 2010 the company Sony and the Taiwan company Hon Hai entered the strategic agreement on purchase of the production plant to the ownership of the company Foxconn Slovakia, the world leader in the electrical technology production industry.

     The purpose of the plant after this transaction has remained unchanged, it still aims to produce LCD televisions and it plans to expand their production program further in future.  

 

Seasonality of production

     The production of televisions is subject to seasonality, which means that every year a high season alternates a low season. If the company Foxconn Slovakia as a producer of televisions wants to succeed in the competition fight, the production should be managed efficiently, first of all in the periods of lower orders, i.e. during the low season. Standard tools of efficient management in Foxconn Slovakia contain e.g. the cooperation with agencies of temporary employment during the high season or a temporary change into a one-shift production during the low season.  

     The production rationalisation in the form of a one-shift operation during the low season optimizes production processes, increases the production efficiency, decreases costs. During the high season there is again a planned change into a two-shift model.
