Fischer Automotive: Opening of a new factory in Serbia
The German automotive supplier Fischer Automotive has opened a new factory in Jagodina, Serbia in June 2021. The new site increases the company`s production capacity in Europe. Fischer will use the new site for the production of ventilation nozzles for clients like Mercedes and BMW.
The building has a total area of 8.500 square meters and was built in ten months. It will provide space for 450 employees. Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić said at the opening ceremony that this would strengthen Serbia immensely.
“Our factory in Jagodina enables further expansion of our competitiveness”, clarifies Prof. Klaus Fischer, owner of Fischer Group. According to the company, Fischer Automotive has chosen the location in Serbia because several companies in the sector are already located there, knowledge of injection moulding technologies is available and Serbia is an up-and-coming industrial country with a high level of education. “This makes Fischer Automotive an important employer in this region”, saysJohannes Konrad, the speaker of the business management at Fischer Automotive.
