“We are very satisfied with the work performed by both job candidates and the employees. At no point did we doubt the quality of the workforce, which is one of the reasons why we’ve opted to build the factory in Kikinda. We have good experience with the local people”, Pejic added.
Calzedonia currently has factories in Sombor and Subotica, with around 3,000 workers, whereas facilities in Kikinda and Kula are being completed simultaneously. The local government in Kikinda sold 3.3 hectares of land in the new industrial zone to the Group for around 12 million dinars.
