Deputy General Manager of Bankom, Mladen Pesut, said that the latest investment of the group in the hexane extraction process would lead to the employment of 90 people, who will be provided with additional training in this field. The new factory, he added, will enable the production of new products meant for export.
He thanked the City of Belgrade and the Municipality of Obrenovac for their support and the help provided in realizing the new project of the company, which exports its products to the markets of 27 states worldwide.

According to him, the City of Belgrade supports local businessmen, employs the local construction industry and has a god foreign trade deficit achieved through export.
