Dragoljub Radulović, Alfa Technics CEO

It’s All About People

This widely renowned Svilajnac-based company designs and manufactures demanding construction frames and process equipment, vehicle test cabins for the world’s leading manufacturers, steel structures for numerous airports around the world that provide extra comfort for passengers, etc.

The numerous Serbian companies that have successfully realized initial business ideas by relying on their own knowhow and experience serve as proof that it is possible to become and remain a strategic partner of the world’s largest companies by using your own powers to develop your own business in Serbia. Alfa Technics is one such company.

Does your steel empire prove that it is possible to start from nothing and become a strategic partner of renowned global manufacturers from different branches of industry?

— Anything’s possible… With just a few friends and associates, engineers and experienced experts in the field of design and production, I established a company in 2010 that became a reliable partner in the international business environment in just a few years.

Today, slightly more than 12 years on, Alfa Technics has around 300 employees and more than 17,000 sqm of production and administrative space, on an area of five hectares within the Customs Free Zone in Svilajnac. In 2017, we moved from Kragujevac to this city, which has taken a European approach to creating a stimulating business environment for a decade and a half, and we then invested approximately 15 million euros in plant facilities and equipment.

Are you expanding your production programme constantly?

– Standing still is stepping backwards. Being familiar with the clients with whom you do business, as well as those with whom you are seeking to establish cooperation, their needs and plans, is key to survival, development and advancement. At Alfa Technics we are continuously training new generations of experts and improving our knowledge and skills so that we are ready to respond not only to current needs, but also to the future needs of the sophisticated international market.

We design and manufacture demanding construction frames and process equipment, with the adoption of special production programmes. Thus, for example, Rolls-Royce, Porsche, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Mercedes, Fiat, Volvo, Audi and BMW test their vehicles in cabins manufactured by Alfa Technics.

At the same time, steel structures that we produce and assemble here provide additional comfort for passengers at airports around the world, from Argentina to Australia, thanks to our long-term partnership with ThyssenKrupp Airport Systems. We cooperate with companies from 42 countries around the world and that makes me very proud.

Your employees’ high-quality and expertise is what sets you apart from the competition. Do you appreciate hard work and invest in staff training because you believe that there can be no success without good people?

– People are the most important factor. With mutual support, understanding and trust, every goal can be reached. We hire all those who want to advance, as well as those who we have something to learn from in order for us to be better every day. We have our own training center that has produced, among others, five top experts with the title of International Welding Engineer (IWE).

We have spent years supporting dual education. That’s how more than 60 high school students had the opportunity to acquire theoretical and practical knowledge right here with us. With such an approach, over the coming decades I believe that Alfa Technics will continue to contribute not only to the development of the local economy, but also to the Serbian economy as a whole.
