ODW Elektrik to open Macedonian cables plant
By Jaroslaw Adamowski
Posted 17 April 2014
German cable and wire manufacturer ODW Elektrik is planning to set up a new production facility in Macedonia’s Ohrid-Struga free economic zone, Macedonian Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski announced at a press conference.
Macedonia’s government and the company completed negotiations on April 11, according to Gruevski. Under the plan, ODW Elektrik will build its first Macedonian plant on a 10,000 square metre site. The factory is expected to become operational by the end of this year, and it will create about 1,000 new jobs.
The project in south-western Macedonia is estimated to be worth about €15m.
Based in Steinau an der Straße, the manufacturer operates three production facilities in Germany, Ukraine and Hungary. The company makes its output with the use of various plastics, including PA and PTFE.
Ludwig Bathon, chief executive of ODW Elektrik, said that Macedonia’s labour force and the support provided by state institutions were among the reasons which convinced the manufacturer to launch its greenfield investment in Macedonia.
ODW Elektrik is forecasting revenues of €75.2m for 2014, an increase of 3.4% from €72.75m a year earlier.
Jetzt sind Wahlen, Zoran, sei mal ein wenig sparsamer mit den Propaganda-Meldungen. : Was jetzt gelabert wird, ist nicht mal halb so wert wie sonst. :
über die makedonier her ziehen aber danach in die rep.makedonien fahren zum schoppen,casino oder zum zahnarzt:
immer mehr griechen aus nordgriechenland fahren in die rep makedonien zum schoppen oder tanken oder zum arztbesuch weil es einfach dort günstiger ist als in nordgriechenland.
wenn sie wieder zürück sind meckern sie wieder bestimmt über die rep makedonien wie man auch hier im bf sehen kann
Greeks Head to Skopje for Gas, Dentists and Casinos
Cars from across northern Greece are queuing outside Skopje, while it was found that the Greek state has suffered more than 13 million euros from sales losses just in the prefecture of Kilkis.
The northern Greek prefecture of Macedonia is suffering, not so much due to the irredentist policy followed by their neighbor, Skopje, but due to the economic decline.
Hundreds of thousands of people from northern Greece are moving to Skopje due to the financial crisis, in search of cheaper goods and services and the gods of fortune. This mass exodus has a severe impact on the local and national economy, driving some local tradesmen and professionals out of business. The financial drain of Greece is methodical. The unbeatable prices, the unique products or services but most of all the luxurious casinos that can be found in FYROM are taking a great toll on Greece. Skopje which seems to be a small Las Vegas, located right at the countrys borders, lured in more than one million Greeks to spend their money during 2013.
Anyone who visits the casinos also has the chance to fill their tanks up with cheap gas, do some shopping and even visit the local grocery shops. Others receive medical and cosmetic services from experts in Skopje, while family men and retirees chose to settle permanently in the towns of the region, while at the same time the frontier zone of Greece wastes away due to the lack of such resources. Meanwhile, the distress calls of local bodies for the State to take action in order to limit the economic bleeding are still awaiting response.
Was willst du uns jetzt damit sagen? Viele Türken kommen auch auf die griechischen Inseln um Alkohol zu trinken, was bei euch ja nur beschränkt möglich ist.
