The German company Bizerba, a leading producer of scales in the world, is coming to Valjevo.
This was confirmed by the Valjevo City Council. The new factory, worth EUR 33 million, which will have 305 permanent employees initially, would be located in the new Business Zone in the suburban settlement of Goric.
The arrival of the big German investor to Valjevo was recently announced by Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic.
Bizerba employs around 4,300 workers worldwide and it operates in 120 countries. The company’s production facilities, in addition to Germany, are located in Austria, Switzerland, Italy, France, Spain and the USA.
The City Council has defined the draft decision on the alienation from the public ownership of Valjevo of 11.8 hectares of undeveloped building land owned by the state, without compensation, for the purpose of the realization of an investment project of importance for the Republic of Serbia and the city. Previously, Bizerba submitted the letter of intent expressing an interest in the realization of the investment in Valjevo, pertaining to the production of retail scales and industrial components.
“During the three-year investment period, the investment will amount to around EUR 70 million and around 800 new workers should be employed at the factory,” said the head urban planner of Valjevo, Jasna Micic.
