Závod (until 1927 "Závody" in Slovak; in Hungarian Pozsonyzávod - until 1907 Závod ) is a municipality in western Slovakia .
It is located in the Záhorie region in the Záhorská nížina lowland , about 14 km north of the western Slovak town of Malacky and about 50 km from the capital Bratislava . The Abrod nature reserve is located in parts of the municipality and a stop on the Bratislava – Kúty – Břeclav railway line is west of the D2 motorway .
The first written mention was made in 1557 as Zawad . The name is said to be derived from the Hungarian word "zab" for oats. Závod actually means “za vodu” and means “behind / near the water” in German, which means: behind / near the river March.
