Mayor Carlos Chaves Monteiro told Lusa news agency that the toy factory is currently occupying a space that is able to accommodate 12 to 14 workers but that this is to “soon” increase to 24 before then increasing again to 90 employees when at full capacity.
According to the mayor, the activity to be carried out by the business unit will involve painting toys “for a German company, which will then enter the European and international market”.
The mayor said that he has already met with the investor, together with the councillor of the municipality of Guarda, who is responsible for the area of entrepreneurship, Cecília Amaro.
“We want to show that Guarda can have a competitive capacity to attract not only business, but also has the qualified labour required to be able to boost these initiatives”, concluded Carlos Chaves Monteiro.
