SARIO Success Stories

Dominant position of automotive industry is reflected also in the highest share of successful SARIO projects in this industry. SARIO has provided a broad and intensive assistance to Jaguar Land Rover by the location selection process, as well as during the project implementation in Nitra. As for the longer established OEMs, our agency assisted to PSA Peugeot Citroën (currently Stellantis – established in 2003), KIA (established in 2004) and Volkswagen (expansion projects in 2008 and 2020).
 
Apart of OEMs, SARIO has provided assistance also to large number of automotive suppliers, such as Mobis, Faurecia, Brose or Honeywell (currently Garett Motion in Prešov). As for the other economic sectors, the highest shares of reported successful projects of SARIO belong to electronics and electrical components industry (e.g. MinebeaMitsumi, BSH or Klauke) and machinery and mechanical equipment industry (e.g. Embraco, Vaillant, Muehlbauer and Schindler).

SARIO has assisted not only to investors in field of industrial production, but also to investors establishing or expanding Shared Service Centres (e.g. Amazon, Dell and AT&T) and IT centres (e.g. T-systems and IBM).

One of the main current trends, that is reflected also in the composition of the reported successful projects of SARIO, is the increasing share of investment projects with higher added value (such as R&D and technology centres or design centres). Examples of reported successful projects in SARIO from this field are: Muehlbauer, Visma, Yanfeng, Porsche Werkzeugbau or Schaeffler Kysuce.
