“We have addressed the line ministry and we expect this process to be finished soon. If everything goes according to plan, the construction of the production facilities should start in early 2019. The equipment has arrived and is currently located in Belgrade. We are now looking for a warehouse in Arilje where the equipment will be stored until the construction starts”, the president of the municipality of Arilje specified.
The Turkish investor expects that as much as 80% of the products manufactured in their Arilje plant would be exported to the European and the Russian market and that the monthly exports would exceed EUR 2 million.
On the occasion of the signing of the memorandum, it was announced that the factory would have the latest technology, with a special focus on the environmental aspect of production.
In addition to the existing ones, more wastewater treatment filters have been bought and they meet the standards that exceed even those in the European Union.
The factory will span up to 3,000 square meters and be located on a 2-hectare land plot.
