The Austrian company Zumtobel opened the factory for the production of LED lighting in Nis on Friday, September 28, 2018. The factory already has 300 employees, and once it reaches its full capacity, there will be 1,100. Zumtobel invested EUR 30.6 million in the construction of the 40,000-m2 factory, and the Government of Serbia provided subsidies of eight million euros.
The official opening of the factory at the Vinogradarski Institut Work Zone, next to the Nis-Niska Banja road, was attended by Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic, who pointed out that the preparation for the arrival of Zumtobel to Serbia had begun two and a half years before.
He said that the factory in Nis would have an annual turnover of EUR 120 million, which would be very important for the area and the entire Serbia.
Zumtobel is one of the leading companies when it comes to innovative lighting solutions, employing 7,000 people in 14 production facilities on four continents.
