Textile industry: Turkish Avrasya to launch production in Babusnica

Following the Turkish textile company, Avrasya Tekstil expressing its interest in leasing the facilities of AHA Mura Prvi Maj, the administrative receiver of the company has declined the offer, as the plan is to sell the factory.

The Turkish company then decided to lease a production hall in Babusnica, and they are also planning to build a facility in Pirot. The construction of the new factory will probably also depend on incentives provided by the state, as Avrasya plans to employ an exact number of workers.

The reason for opening a facility in Babusnica instead of Pirot is simple. Pirot doesn’t have the premises suitable for initiating textile production with the only suitable premises being those of AHA Mura’s. The Turkish company was also interested in leasing the premises of another former textile giant but these premises were turned into a tire warehouse.

Avrasya is currently in the process of opening a company, with a seat in Pirot, which will produce light, ready-to-wear clothing, just like its factory in Turkey. The company needs sewing, tailoring, ironing and packing workers to start the production.

To remind, at the opening of the Balkan Textile Fair in Belgrade, Serbian Trade Minister, Rasim Ljajic has announced that four textile companies from Turkey had expressed interest in launching production in Serbia.
