Today "Draexlmaier" Company in our city employs more than 3,300 employees, and there are prospects of opening new production premises, but it is still early to talk about it, said the General Director of Draexlmaier Group in Zrenjanin, Andreas Weber during the visit of the Mayor Čedomir Janjić to this Company.
The Mayor and his associates visited a new production sector where new employees started to work after several-month training in the Company's facilities in Romania and Moldavia, as well as in Zrenjanin.
During the last three months more than 3hree hundred new jobs were opened in this new sector.
As he said, after the visit and talks with the Company's Management, this extension of the production proves that Zrenjanin is a good place for investment.
- 300 new jobs, is really good news. In my annual report I said that 1,637 citizens of Zrenjanin had been employed, we did not mention these 300 employees because they were employed during the last three months - said Janjić.
- It is encouraging to hear from the Director Weber that they have big plans including new premises – the Mayor added.
Opening the section for cable cutting and preinstalling the production process ahs been integrated, which, according to Director Weber, means that all the production stages can be finished in one plant. This kind of production ensures the maximal efficiency, since the packing, repacking or transport are no longer needed.
Andreas Weber said that by opening a new sector the Company sent a clear message that is had long-term plans in Zrenjanin and investments in Serbia, and that implementation of this project resulted in 300 new jobs.
- Also this is a further step to automatised high-tech production, which needs not only well qualified workers, but also technicians and engineers that will programme and maintain the machines - said Weber.
He added that the Company decided to build the production premises in Zrenjanin, not only because of the labour but also due to very positive business environment. The Company has been in Zrenjanin since 2008 and it is one of the biggest employers and exporters in the region, the top quality automotive parts are produced in its production facilities.
