The British company Delphi opened the Aptiv Packard factory in Leskovac today. The factory will produce electrical installations for the car industry and should employ around 2,000 people by the end of 2020.
EUR 25 million was invested in the factory complex, which takes up 30,000 square meters in the Green Zone location, and the Town of Leskovac let the British company use six hectares of land for this investment.
Over 400 workers have been employed at the factory so far, and another 700 are planned to be employed by the end of this year.
The opening was attended by Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic, the head of production in Europe and the Middle East of the British company, Ulrich Eichler, and the mayor of Leskovac, Goran Cvetanovic.
Delphi has over 147,000 workers in factories in 45 countries, among which is the factory in Novi Sad, which opened in 2015 and where around 3,000 people work at the moment.
