The company announced the plans to set up a new manufacturing facility near Prešov, Slovakia. The new facility is scheduled for completion in early 2017.
According to Leyard, the new factory will help to address the demands for its digital displays and video walls from European customers, and especially those who prefer to purchase visual solutions built in the European Union (EU). The new factory will join the company’s existing facilities in Albi (France), Shenzhen and Beijing (China), and Beaverton (USA).
“Europe is a critical market for us as we expand our global presence,” - said Robert Stewart, executive director of Leyard Europe. “The new factory will bring us even closer to our European, Russian, Middle Eastern and African customers while enabling us to extend high-quality manufacturing into a key region of the world.”
Located in an industrial park in the town of Záborské near Prešov, the new facility will consist of a factory, office space, conference rooms and a cafeteria. It will also include a showroom displaying Leyard’s LED video walls along with Planar display solutions and other advanced technology for customers and partners.
