New manufacturer in Poprad chooses RTI to find staff.
Poprad, United Kingdom, September 07, 2007 ---- RTI, Radio Tatras International, the leading interactive pan-European English/Slovak radio station, is proud to announce the launch of a new campaign for British manufacturer Horwich Sewing.
RTI, Radio Tatras International, will be airing a range of commercials for Horwich to enable the UK company to fully staff its new manufacturing plant in Poprad, Slovakia.
Albert Condliffe, Horwich Sewing, said, “We primarily chose RTI because they have a fantastic audience.
“Equally, due to the fact that RTI is an international service, English and Slovak, it was also very easy for us to agree the creative direction of the spots and leave RTI to translate that in Slovak for us.
“As RTI broadcasts in both Slovakia and the UK we are also hopeful that those awaiting an opportunity to return to Poprad will hear our commercial and contact us.
“We would certainly add that when other UK companies start or increase their employment in Slovakia the first place they should visit is RTI – their level of help and support is a shining example to all radio stations.”
Eric Wiltsher, Director RTI, added, “We would like to thank Horwich Sewing for their continued support of Slovakia and RTI.
“This contract explains perfectly why in an area such as Poprad there is a need for an English/Slovak station offering services to companies from countries in both languages.
“We now look forward to a number of other UK based companies commencing their investment in Slovakia via RTI.”
The new Job Spot created for Horwich will air in both English and Slovak shows; the commercial will be aired in Slovak.

Poprad, Slovakia, November 21, 2007 ---- Horwich Sewing Bucks the Trend in Slovakia
Welcome To Slovakia, founder Jan Telensky, helps retain and expand sewing jobs in Slovakia
Welcome To Slovakia and Horwich Sewing are proud to the announce the commencement of manufacturing at the new Horwich factory in Poprad, Slovakia.
The textile industry, specifically sewing, has seen job losses of around 13,000 in the past five years in Slovakia. The announcement in Poprad, which will result in 200 new jobs, is testament to the ever-growing business ties between the UK and Slovakia.
Luton-based businessman and CEO of the multi-Award Winning AquaCity in Poprad, Jan Telensky, said, “This win/win situation was due to a team of people working tirelessly to demonstrate that Poprad, just two hours from the UK, has everything a modern manufacturing company needs.
“Initially, Welcome To Slovakia were approached and looked at ways to assist Horwich to achieve their objectives and remain in Slovakia.
“One problem I solved simply was by making available the correct premises for them and arranging the lease.
“RTI, Radio Tatras International ran a jobs creation campaign for them, for which I thank both the Slovak and UK regulators who made it possible for us to broadcast in both countries in both languages, and this resulted in new jobs being created in the Tatry Region. The RTI campaign, the station can be heard simultaneously in the UK, also informed ex-pat Slovaks living in the UK about the new opportunities. This resulted in many enquiries from the UK – one resulting in a Management position being offered and the young lady is now returning to Slovakia, a trend we hope will be mirrored by other Welcome To Slovakia projects.”
Albert Condliffe, Horwich Sewing, added, “We were almost at the point of expanding our company elsewhere in Europe when we were introduced to Poprad by the team representing Jan Telensky.
“Compared to our previous discussions, desperately trying to expand in Slovakia, our discussions in Poprad were like a breath of fresh air.
“Once Jan Telensky had resolved the problem of premises, we turned to RTI to recruit new staff to work along people we had already found – the interviews were held in a business section of AquaCity and from that more staff was recruited and trained. Already, we are planning another campaign with RTI for the second phase of our expansion in Poprad and like Jan Telensky; Horwich would be honoured if we can assist more Slovaks, who want to return, to find quality employment in Poprad.
“The combination of Welcome To Slovakia and RTI is something I can highly recommend to any European company wanting to re-locate to Slovakia”.
Around 200 new jobs will be created over the next few months as Horwich settles into its new premises, from where it'll continue the production of textiles that include tablewear, protective clothing and textiles for the hospitality and hotel industries.
