Three large corporations have decided to stay for an indefinite period of time in the Odzaci Industrial Zone, while new investors are expected to arrive soon.
The Canadian-German company, Magna Sitting, which produces car seat covers, is building another production facility in Odzaci, spanning 6,100 square metres, with an intention of hiring at least 550 new workers. Magna opened its first production facility here in 2013 (spanning 4,300 square metres), and created almost 1,000 new jobs.
“We have completely developed the industrial zone which now has access roads, and power, water and gas supply in order to provide investors with the best possible conditions in this part of the country. The Vojvodinian government has recently allocated 4.27 million dinars to us towards building sewage in the Zeleznicka Street which leads to the zone, which is 80% of the required funding of 5.34 million dinars. We are also going to use this money towards building a roundabout with two entrances”, the acting president of the Odzaci municipality, Dusan Marijan says.
Austria-based company, Greiner Packaging has also built a new production facility here. In 2012, Greiner acquired local plastics company Hipolplast and since then has quadrupled the production volume. The company has 200 workers at the moment.
The acting municipal president Dusan Marjan also announces the upcoming reconstruction of the Backi Gracac-Kruscic road, on Odzaci’s side, which is at the moment in a very bad state.
