BROSE

Up To 1,100 Jobs Will Be Created

Brose, the world’s fourth-largest family-owned automotive supplier, will open a location for development and production in Pančevo in the summer of 2021, with the company striving to generate revenue of around 440 million euros in Serbia by 2025

The supplier wants to create up to 1,100 jobs in development, sales, purchasing and production. With 120 million euros set to be spent for the new location, construction works are advancing rapidly and will be completed by the spring of 2021, with production set to start in August.

The highly automated production at Brose’s Pančevo facility will include, among others, the production of electronics and drives for cooling fan modules. All electronics for the Brose group are produced under clean room conditions. In the coming years, the company plans to employ about 900 employees in all areas of production. In addition to this, a development centre will also be built in Pančevo by 2025, where up to 200 engineers will develop new products for electric vehicles. The goal is to offer customised solutions for car manufacturers and provide vehicle users with more comfort, safety and efficiency.

Brose offers many benefits for its employees, including a canteen. Healthcare is also very important: employees receive private health insurance funded by the company, including an annual medical examination. Modern training, in part with challenging sessions at locations in Germany, Mexico and China, is offered to top representatives, as well as participation in management development programmes.

SOCIALLY ACTIVE IN THE CITY AND THE REGION

Brose also takes its corporate social responsibility seriously: it has, for example, made a significant contribution to expanding the testing capacity for COVID-19, thus protecting the health of the population in Pančevo. Brose aims to collaborate with local schools, as well as the Technical University of Novi Sad and the University of Belgrade, in order to discover and promote talent at an early stage and encourage the development of joint research projects. In the future, this automotive supplier will regularly open the gates of its factory to interested citizens and provide insight into production and the working world.

BROSE PANČEVO

ROMAN STRAKOS, GENERAL MANAGER OF BROSE BELGRADE:

“When investigating possible locations for our new production and development site, contacting the German- Serbian Chamber of Commerce and the Development Agency of Serbia proved invaluable. The two organisations host a number of interesting and useful conferences, as well as training and knowledge-sharing events, which helped us understand the local market and set up our organisation accordingly.

“Even under the influence of the Coronavirus Pandemic, Brose continues to focus on the construction of our new plant in Pančevo and the recruitment of experts and skilled personnel. Things are progressing rapidly and we aim to start production earlier than planned in 2021. Our family-owned company is proud to support society in these challenging times – in order to fulfil this commitment, we are looking for the most passionate and capable employees. Anyone willing to deliver an outstanding performance is welcome. Our highly motivated first 100 employees have convinced me that Serbia in general, and Pančevo in particular, was the right choice for Brose“.
