Magna stopping production at Slovenian paint shop next week

Hoče, 1 March - The market situation and lower demand has prompted Canadian-Austrian automotive group Magna to stop production at its Slovenian paint shot in Hoče next week moving it to Graz, Austria. Hoče will now focus on engineering and a new development centre, while some of the 158 workers working in Hoče will lose their job.
