The Finnish company PKC Wiring Systems, which produces wiring systems for commercial vehicles, held a two-day Job Fair in Pozarevac, looking to employ 500 workers.
“We need all job profiles – from people with elementary school education to university graduates. Our future workers will first have to undergo special training,” said Kristina Ilic, employment and development at PKC.
In order to open two new factories in Pozarevac, the Finnish company had to first send a letter of intent to local authorities. Following the letter, local MPs adopted a decree to allocate land in the Pozarevac free zone to PKC. The Finnish company is now free to buy land in the town’s industrial zone, where the former sugar factory used to be.
During the first phase, PKC will build a factory that will span 9,000 square metres while the second factory will be smaller and will span around 5,000 square metres.
These two factories will produce wiring systems for commercial vehicles, mostly medium and heavy trucks. According to their letter of intent, in the first year, PKC’s investment will amount to over EUR 3.1 million. The corporation Motherson Sumi Systems Ltd, the biggest Indian producer of car components, is the majority owner of PKC Wiring Systems.
