Italijanski "Danieli" ulaže 500 mil EUR u izgradnju čeličane u Šapcu?
Italijanska kompanija "Danieli" zainteresovana je da u Industrijskoj zoni u Šapcu uloži do 500 mil EUR u proizvodnju specijalizovanih čeličnih profila, rečeno je "Politici" u Vladi Srbije. To je jedan od rezultata italijansko-srpskog samita koji je prošle nedelje održan u Beogradu.
Ova kompanija je među tri najveće na svetu u proizvodnji opreme iz oblasti metalurgije i među svetskim liderima u proizvodnji specijalizovanih čeličnih profila. Poseduje šest proizvodnih kapaciteta u Evropi i Aziji, a interesovanje za investirtanje u Srbiji inteziviralo je pre nekoliko meseci prilikom posete predsednika Borisa Tadića Italiji.
- Imaju nameru da u Šapcu ulože u izgradnju jedne od najsavremenijih čeličana u svetu. Reč je o velikoj investiciji koja će direktno zaposliti hiljadu ljudi i još toliko indirektno. Plan je da dve trećine proizvodnje izvoze iz Srbije. Za nas bi ta investicija bila od velikog značaja jer će, osim što bi znatno povećala proizvodnju, izvoz i zaposlenost, za sobom povući i svoje kupce, čime bi omogućili nove investicije u sektor metalurgije - kaže izvor "Politike" u Vladi.
Pismo o namerama, očekuje se, biće potpisano u narednih tridesetak dana.
South Korea's Yura opens new plant in Leskovac
On Friday (16 March 2012), Yura opened its fourth plant in Serbia in Leskovac.
At the opening ceremony of the South Korean plant that will be producing electric cables for cars, Serbian Deputy Prime Minister Verica Kalanovic stated that the complete production would be exported and reminded that Yura had built a cable plant in Raca and two plants in Nis in a very short time in addition to the one in Leskovac.
Yura Corporation Vice President Om De Yal said that the Leskovac-based plant would be producing electrical installations for Kia and Hyundai vehicles that were assembled in Europe.
- The plant in Leskovac will be making cables for about 60,000 cars annually, but there is also a possibility of boosting the annual production to 120,000 sets of electric cables for motor vehicles - said Om.
He also pointed out that the South Korean company had fulfilled its promise and built a big plant in spite of the economic crisis in the European market, adding that they would appreciate if the Serbian government continued to provide support to the achievement of business goals, just like it had been doing so far.
- South Korea's Yura has employed 4,500 people at its four plants in Serbia over the last two years, and that number will grow to about 5,500 until July 2012 - said Mladjan Dinkic, leader of the United Regions of Serbia.
The opening ceremony was also attended by Serbia President Boris Tadic.
Germany's Falke opens EUR 10 million socks factory in Leskovac - Jobs for 600 workers
Germany's Falke opened a EUR 10 million factory in Leskovac on March 16th to produce socks.
This factory will be producing up to 15m pairs of socks and fine tights a year, and it will employ 600 workers in the medium run, which will make Falke the biggest employer in the region.
On the occasion of the opening of the German socks factory in Leskovac, Serbian President Boris Tadic said he was extremely proud of the fact that the company had chosen that city to invest in.
- I am honoured to take part in the opening of such a facility, where 600 people will find jobs. I am proud Falke has chosen to invest in Leskovac and its people, who are good and hard-working - Tadic stated at the opening ceremony.
This ceremony was also attended by Falke CEO Paul Falke, Serbian Deputy Prime Minister Verica Kalanovic and German Ambassador to Serbia Wolfram Maas.
- Germany is one of our key partners. We have boosted our cooperation with Germany, brought in investors, and Germany is also the biggest donor. But I believe new possibilities are opening up in the German business community as well now that Serbia has received the status of a candidate for EU membership. We will continue to bring German investors. I expect many German companies will soon be Serbian companies too - said Tadic.
German Ambassador to Serbia Wolfram Maas said that the opening of Falke's new socks factory in Leskovac at the time of an economic crisis represented an exceptional achievement and a proof of Serbia's political stability.
