Sremska Mitrovica is looking at several large investments in the coming period, including the Italian company East West opening a footwear factory.
As stated recently by Mayor Vladimir Sanader for Radio and Television of Vojvodina, East West is expected to open the production facility in the autumn of 2017.
Mayor Sanader expects that the agreement on the purchase of land in the North Industrial Zone will be signed in the first day of the upcoming year.
The management of the Italian company is planning to employ up to 600 people in the new facility, and the company’s representatives have already talked about this with the National Employment Service of Sremska Mitrovica.
– After Christmas, all interested workers will be tested. The footwear factory needs a large number of workers, with or without work experience, for sewing, tailoring and cutting jobs. Everyone interested can address their employment adviser, and transport to the facility will probably be organized for those people coming from the neighbouring towns and villages – says Natasa Radmanovic of the National Employment Service in Sremska Mitrovica.
The owner East West is Enrico Rossi, who is already present in Serbia through Progetti d.o.o. (owned by Enrico and his brother Romano Rossi), which operates in several Serbian cities (Sombor, Vrsac, Vladimirci…). Progetti is a large Serbia-based exporter of footwear uppers and finished footwear, and the company’s website lists Gucci, Burberry and Prada among its clients.
It is expected that the training of the workers who should get employed in Sremska Mitrovica will be organized in the facility in Vladimirci.
The city administration of Sremska Mitrovica says that more details about the new facility will be available after the purchase of the land is completed.
