Vítkovice Steelworks back in operation after enforced break

The Vítkovice Steelworks is back in operation after more than a month-long enforced break. The steelworks ceased production completely at the start of December due to a lack of demand. The firm’s management issued a brief statement saying production had been fully renewed but refused to comment on the fall-out or the firm’s immediate prospects. Vítkovice is the biggest steelworks in the country with over 1,000 employees.
