CEO of Calzedonia, Sandro Veronesi, said that the factory in Kula was a new idea that they wanted to realize with people in Serbia.
“We want to have a concrete presence in the market of Serbia in the future as well”, Veronesi said.
He pointed out that Calzedonia had a plan to open more specialized factories in the region, which will cooperate with each other.
“We are confident that there’s a better future ahead for Serbia, which needs to be based on good income and opportunities”, Veronesi said and thanked everyone who helped with the implementation of the project.
Calzedonia, which produces socks, bathing suits and underwear, already has factories in Subotica, Sombor, Ruma and Apatin.
In Serbia, Calzedonia founded the Gordon Company, which started producing underwear at a then-new facility spanning 12,000 square metres, in the Industrial Zone Mali Bajmok in November 2013.
