Impol Seval is going to invest about EUR 5 million this year in the revitalization of existing equipment and the construction of a flue gas treatment plant and a mini-refinery for processing oil vapors and oils, Ninko Tesic, director general of the aluminum mill in Sevojno, said to eKapija.
- The plan is to launch both project this year, and their completion depends on our business results in 2013. Indications from the market are not so favorable, but we are optimistic that this year will be at least the same as 2012 - said Tesic.
Production at the Uzice-based company hit a record high of 45,761 tonnes of cold-rolled products in 2012. Although there was a decline in operations early last year due to exchange rate differences, the company achieved a positive financial results at the end of the year. It also put a new coloring line worth EUR 17 million into trial operation last year, so that Tesic hopes that good business results are yet to come.
