The facility of the Italian factory Emmepi in Kikinda stopped operating at the beginning of this week, because the owners had not managed to contract any new projects for 2021, their warehouses are overstocked and the parent company’s account is frozen.
Sixty workers, mostly women, lost their jobs. Emmepi produced female legwear exclusively, as semi-products.
This is a direct consequence of the pandemic-induced economic crisis. The owners of Emmepi, sisters Luciana and Laura Orlandi, decided to shut down the factory after 13 years of operations in northern Banat. They started producing in Kikinda in 2007 when they moved the production activities they used to have in Romania.
Around 75% of the products were made for Italy, and the rest was meant for the Serbian market. It seems, however, that this arrangement is no longer profitable, as the facility was located in a rented space.
