Johnson Matthey Invests in New Autocatalyst Plant in Macedonia

May 10 (Bloomberg) -- Johnson Matthey Plc, the U.K.-based pollution control specialist that makes a third of all autocatalysts, will build a new plant in Macedonia to double capacity.

The 50 million pound ($81 million) investment will increase capacity in the Balkan country to 8 million units a year, said Ian Godwin, investor relations director in a phone interview from London. The factory will open “in the next couple of years,” before tighter European laws on emission control come into force in the next few years, he said.

The new plant will be near the capital Skopje, he said.
