The Government of Serbia and the British company Aptiv have signed a Memorandum of Understanding which entails the company opening a factory in Zajecar, where around 2,000 workers will be employed.
The negotiations about the opening of Aptiv’s factory in Zajecar took almost a year and they resulted in the signing of the Memorandum of U. The construction works are expected to start in early 2020.

After Leskovac and Novi Sad, the British manufacturer of electronic and electrical equipment for vehicles will thereby open another factory in Serbia, and close to EUR 20 million will be invested in the construction of this facility, according to the available information.
The production facility is planned to span 40,000 square metres. Considering the nature of the planned activities, it would primarily employ technical workers.
Aptiv initially wanted to open a new factory at the very entrance to Zajecar, from the direction of Bor, not far from the Gorenje factory, but after a detailed analysis, they decided to build the factory in the industrial zone on Zvezdanski Put.
As Zajecar does not have enough qualified workers, there is an option of employing people from all towns and municipalities in Timocka Krajina (Timok County) at the factory.
Aptiv previously opened a facility worth nearly EUR 30 million in Leskovac, where it currently employs 300 employees. A total of around 2,000 are expected to be employed in the Zajecar factory by 2020. This British company, headquartered in Dublin, Ireland, operates in 45 countries, employing 147,000 workers.
