The Italian company Aunde Italia Group, which opened a car seat factory employing 250 workers in Jagodina in March 2014, is starting to construct another production facility today.
The head of the Jagodina Municipal Parliament, Dragan Markovic said for Tanjug earlier that the new facility would have been finished by April next year and would employ 400 new workers.
The facility will be located in the industrial zone, which is some 500 metres from the motorway and the Corridor 10 railroad – Markovic explained.
According to him, Aunde concluded a contract with Mercedes which stipulates construction of a new production facility. The Serbian Ministry of Economy has granted Aunde a subsidy in the amount of 3,641 EUR per worker.
Markovic added that the Confezione Andrea Serbia Company, which produces car tarpaulins, would also start constructing a production facility in Jagodina’s industrial zone in January.
This Italian company opened its first facility in Jagodina in spring 2013 and it currently employs around 600 workers.
Owing to foreign companies, this year Jagodina’s has managed to generate an $11-million-surplus in trading with companies abroad – Markovic added.
