A factory of the Swiss company Etampa has officially opened in Krusevac. The company comes from the sector of machine processing of metal, the factory employs around 25 workers, and the plan is for there to be up to 60 workers by the end of the year. The production capacity is around 280 million parts a year. The majority of Etampa’s clients come from the fields of automotive industry (Ferrari, Porsche, Bugatti), electronics/electrical engineering, construction and medical/safety technology.
Currently the biggest problem, as director Aleksandar Stankovic emphasized, is the lack of toolmakers, and the plans are for them to get engaged in initiating dual education for those purposes, together with the Regional Chamber of Commerce and the School Administration.
– In its ambitious plans, Etampa emphasized that it also wanted to expand the production, so the city will continue justifying its status as a favorable business environment and a good host for all companies and business entities – mayor Jasmina Palurovic said on that occasion, it is said on the official website of Krusevac.
