The Austrian company Eyemaxx is beginning to build a second hall in the logistics center in Novi Banovci, Municipality of Stara Pazova. The beginning of the construction was celebrated at the company's first facility and the ceremony was attended by the delegation of the Austrian municipality of Leopoldsdorf, with which the Municipality of Stara Pazova signed a Protocol on Cooperation last year.
The first Eyemaxx facility on the territory of the municipality of Stara Pazova, LogMax Alfa, has an area of 17,000 m2 and employs 300 workers.
– The new LogMax Beta hall will be bigger, have 30,000 m2 and employ around 700 people – said Muamer Ragipovic, director of Eyemaxx Serbia, as reported by RTV.
The investment is worth EUR 15 million.
The first phase (12,000 m2) is to be finished by March 2017, RTV reports.
Eyemaxx bought over 50 hectares in Stara Pazova in 2008, intending to build centers modeled after the main shopping mall in Vienna.
– We know that this is a prosperous job. The Vienna shopping center is the largest one in Europe today – said Michael Muller, founder and director of Eyemaxx Real Estate AG.
New employments, enabled by the new Eyemaxx facility, as well as other companies which will soon start operating, will reduce one of the lowest unemployment rates in Serbia even more, pointed out Djordje Radinovic, president of the municipality of Stara Pazova.
– There's also Lidl, as well as several other companies raising facilities in our municipality. We expect 2,500 to 3,000 new jobs in the period ahead – Radinovic said.
