Czech Loko Trans to build 20 mln euro rolling stock service centre in Macedonia

Czech company Loko Trans will build a 20 million euro ($22.1 million) centre for maintenance and repair of railway rolling stock in Skopje, Nikola Gruevski, leader of Macedonia's ruling VMRO-DPMNE party, has said.

Construction works will begin in the first half of 2017 and the new centre is planned to start operations within less than a year after that, Gruevski said in a statement published on the website of VMRO-DPMNE on Sunday.
Loko Trans will create between 150 and 200 new jobs initially at its Skopje centre. The jobs are expected to reach 600 at a later stage.
Loko Trans, which is based in Brno, buys, sells and lends freight rail cars and locomotives. It also provides maintenance and repairs of rolling stock, including purchasing and selling of spare parts, as well as domestic and international rail transport and forwarding.
