When asked by the paper about whether the company might build another plant in Lithuania, Rolf Breidenbach did not rule out such a possibility.

"The more successfully the current plant operates, the more likely it will become. Currently, I am very optimistic about our Lithuanian company's operations," he said.

"We are pleased with the high qualifications of our employees, and we are quite surprised by their motivation, which is very high," Breidenbach said.

Hella's 30-million-euro plant in the region of Kaunas was officially opened on Thursday.
