Turkish car parts supplier Feka Automotive is to begin the construction of a new production plant at the town of ?uprija central Serbia before the end of this year.
Earlier this month, the family-owned firm based at Bursa in north western Turkey, concluded a memorandum of agreement to invest €15m to establish the facility on a 4ha site in ?uprija industrial zone.
Feka company founder Ferit Karsl?o?lu and Ninoslav Eric, president of ?uprija municipality signed the deal on 13 October under which the town will provide the land for a plant to manufacture vehicle lighting and other components.
In its initial phase, the new facility is scheduled to employ up to 110 workers, but with later development is expected to employ almost 10 times that number.
“This is a big investment for ?uprija as the plan is to have up to 1,000 workers employed at the plant eventually. The factory will be located in the industrial zone which has been equipped with help from the Serbian government,” commented municipal head Ninoslav Eric.
During the past year, Feka representatives have toured Serbia visiting a dozen municipalities in a quest to find the most suitable development site before deciding on ?uprija.
Feka Automotive, which injection moulds components for vehicle internal and exterior mirrors, front and rear lighting, water expansion and steering hydraulic oil tanks and mounted interior trim parts, was formed in 1988.
It counts among its customers worldwide a number of tier one auto suppliers and vehicle manufacturers among them Ford, General Motors, Fiat Chrysler, PSA, Renault, Porsche, Toyota, Hyundai and Magneti Marelli.
Since 2010, the Turkish supplier has restructured its operations to match its increasing business at home and abroad. In June 2014, the company integrated its design, mould making, moulding production and research and development of two separate plants on a single 15,000m2 site.
