The French company Mecafor, which has been producing parts for the automotive industry in Kikinda since 2016, is building a new plant spanning 3,000 square metres in which it will produce aeroplane turbines.
According to the factory director, Nebojsa Nedeljkovic, the production plant should be completed by the end of the summer, and the investment is worth 3 million euro. Once finished, the new plant will create 180 new jobs over the next three years.
“Since we launched production in Kikinda in 2016, we have doubled the number of workers and now we have more than a hundred. The new plant will open new markets to us. So far, we have worked for the automotive industry, truck and agricultural machinery manufacturers, and the new investment will mark Mecafor’s entry into the aviation industry. We expect the production plant to be completed by the end of the summer,” Nedeljkovic said, as quoted on the official website of Kikinda’s local government.

He added that, apart from producing aeroplane turbines, the factory will also do finishing and machining works.
“We recorded a drop in production during the coronavirus pandemic, but the situation has normalized in the meantime,” said Nedeljković and added that the Kikinda plant is especially proud that they are producing parts for such renowned clients as Volvo and John Deere.
