The American company NCR has opened a technology park in Belgrade, its largest campus in Europe, spanning close to 30,000 square metres, costing 100 million dollars.
A park will also serve as a centre for developing new technologies and a place to meet and exchange ideas between the company and the local community.
NCR Corporation, previously known as National Cash Register, deals with software, managed and professional services, consulting, and technology. It manufactures self-service kiosks, point-of-sale terminals, automated teller machines, check processing systems, and barcode scanners.
The Belgrade technology park will eventually employ over 5,000 engineers, economists, lawyers, philologists, analysts and marketing and communications experts who will create new user experiences for clients worldwide in a modern, functional, energetic, efficient and inspiring work environment.
Serbia’s President Aleksandar Vucic attended the opening ceremony and said, on the occasion, that a lot of effort and energy was invested in NCR coming to Serbia, that the company would employ almost 5,000 young people in its Belgrade facility, and that opening of such a facility sent a positive message to other American investors that Serbia was a good place to do business.
NCR started its business in Serbia, in 2011, a year before Vucic came to power, and currently employs more than 4,200 people and supports 5,100 clients worldwide.
It is headquartered in Atlanta and was founded over 135 years. It operates in 180 countries and has about 36,000 employees.
