Henkel will invest EUR 25 million in the expansion of capacities in 2018, it was announced on December 12 at a press conference in Krusevac. The company will have new production technology in 2018.

At an event in Krusevac, Henkel Serbia celebrated 15 years of successful activities in the country. Dusan Antonijevic, Manager of the Krusevac plant, and Igor Eric, Logistics Manager, talked about the previous 15 years of development and emphasized the importance of new projects.

Production of Bref brand
– The Henkel plant in Krusevac produces world-renowned detergent and house cleaning brands, but also very important and popular local brands, such as Merix and Mer. The privatization of Merima is still considered one of the most successful privatizations in Serbia, and the company has realized numerous projects of modernization and enhancement of production technology by investing over EUR 200 million in the past 15 years. Following our strategy of sustainability, we are continuously reducing the environmental footprint. I'm very pleased that we will invest EUR 25 million in the expansion of capacities in 2018 and that we will have new production technology in 2018 – Antonijevic said.

Igor Eric added that a fully modernized warehouse would be fully functional from January 2018.

The third phase of the expansion of the warehouse has been completed and the fully modernized warehouse, which will take up 20,000 m2 and have 15 truck platforms, will be fully functional from January 2018 – Eric said.
