Schneider Electric DMS Novi Sad will continue investing in Serbia and expanding its portfolio, in order to make the Development Center in Novi Sad become the biggest one within the company, announced the company's new general manager, Luis D'Acosta.
– We have big plans for Serbia. When I came here, I was delighted with what I had encountered. So many talented young people in one place. I've worked in numerous companies and I believe we can be very proud of what we have here in Novi Sad – D'Acosta said.
He reminded that Schneider Electric had been operating in Serbia for a long time and that it had acquired the 100% ownership over DMS Novi Sad in June 2018.

From here, we protect and control electrical systems worldwide, which requires a lot of responsibility – D'Acosta pointed out.
As he said, the company plans to keep investing in the development of its operations in our country.

From Novi Sad, we will work on upgrading what we've been producing for the past 20 years, but we also plan to implement certain innovations when it comes to software development. We will keep producing state-of-the-art software, but also expand our activities, using the advantages of virtual and augmented reality, following the development of the technology... This will bring new diversity to the company, while providing our company with more room for innovations and creativity. I also expect us to bring us more work – D'Acosta said.
