A total of 500 people will find employment in the industrial zone in Kula by the year-end, plus another 300 soon after. Italy’s Calzedonia is opening a production facility there on November 1st, the Euroin Company is currently moving their machinery into new premises in the industrial zone, while the German company, Witzenmann has sent a letter of interest, stating their plans to open a factory in the zone.
Calzedonia had bought a 2-ha plot of land in the industrial zone in Kula for slightly over EUR 100,000 and is building its third production facility in Serbia there. Calzedonia already has the Fiorano plant in Sombor and the Gordon plant in Subotica. The plan is for Calzedonia to employ three hundred workers at its Kula factory, which, as expected, to be officially opened by the Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic on November 1st.
The Italian footwear producer Euroin already operates in Kula and Feketic (Municipality of Mali Idjos) and employs a total of 300 workers in both facilities. Euroin produces upper footwear components, which are then sent for finalization to Italy. The company, which has its Serbian headquarters in Ugrinovci near Belgrade, will move its production machiner from the premises it rents in Kula to a new factory in the industrial zone, and it will also expand its production to employ additional 200 workers.
