Miba celebrates 25 years of Powder Metallurgy parts production in Slovakia

Miba recently celebrated the 25th anniversary of its Powder Metallurgy component plant in Dolny Kubin, Slovakia. Miba Sinter Slovakia, with over 1,000 employees, is now the largest Miba facility in the world following almost €100 million investment during the last 25 years.

Miba Sinter Slovakia began as a joint venture with the state enterprise ZVL. Established in 1991 as Miba-ZVL, it was one of the first joint ventures to be built with foreign capital in the former Czechoslovakia. Today the facility is one of the major employers in the Orava region.

The plant manufactures a wide range of PM products for the automotive industry including synchronizer rings, friction rings, belt pulleys and chain sprockets, as well as components for body and chassis applications.
