Italy’s Ondaplast has bought premises of the former Metro Cash and Carry distribution centre in Subotica, where it plans to open a plastic product factory.
Ondaplast was founded 30 years ago, and the company is engaged in transforming polypropylene into corrugated and solid sheets, which have a wide range of applications and are used in many sectors.
As Mayor of Subotica Bogdan Laban said for the Magyar Szo daily that the company would start operating in the free zone regime this August, and the plan is for a hundred workers to be employed.
The reconstruction of the 10,000-square-metre-facility and the subsequent installation of equipment for the production of plastic items of various sizes and shapes should be completed by August too. The company will produce fruit and vegetable baskets, bottle crates, packing boxes, refrigerator back panels and other items of various shapes and purposes in the Subotica factory.
Another Italian company, Caminada is currently building a factory in Free Zone Mali Bajmok near Subotica, and is planning to invest EUR 5 million and employ 120 people over the next five years.
