“The company is engaged in the production of metal structures and their parts. Our business is divided into three main directions: products, services and projects. We have our four production lines that we mostly sell on the domestic market. Most of the business is the services we are doing for large factories, we appear as outsourcing partners and we provide support in the production of certain parts of the product. Given that this is a long-term cooperation, we invest in equipment and production processes. The project part of the business has the greatest growth and implies the design of the product according to the design or design of the partner. We elaborate technical details, and we often participate in product development, “said Marina Mihoković, Director of Sales and Marketing.
“With the owners, no one is happier than we have opened another plant in the entrepreneurial zone, a total of eleven. This is an investment that employs, generates income, gives the opportunity for young people not to go beyond the boundaries of our municipality, “commented Tomo Kovačić, adding that by the end of the year Pisarovina’s entrepreneurial zone is expecting another two investments – the start of construction of a Power Plant capacity of 1.2 megawatts fewer breweries. Mayer Kožić said he was particularly pleased with the opening of production facilities.

Through the entrepreneurial zones we create the conditions for attracting new investments that ultimately employ new people, “said the county governer.
