Springs manufacturer Advanex will be opening a new factory in the Czech Republic next year. The new purpose built 8,500m2 factory will open in August 2018 at CT Park, Prague Airport and will employ up to 60 staff.

CT Park will give us great access to our customer base and will provide an effective distribution network across the globe.”
