The company KROMBERG & SCHUBERT MACEDONIA DOOEL Bitola is firstly registered in Skopje, in 2011. Later, once the construction of the production plant was completed and the production process began, the company was re-registered in the industrial zone “Zhabeni”. The Greenfield approach, which is mainly designated for the less developed and the developing countries, is always an interesting investment solution. Being a country in development, Macedonia is also part of this group of countries, so it became interesting for this kind of investments. The so-called “Greenfield approach” means investment in the construction and the functionality of an entirely new production plant, where the transfer of the production process is also included. The company asset in Bitola consists of a production plant, administrative building, canteen, changing rooms for the employees, parking area and an inner yard.
The company in Bitola is active for 4 years by now and there are 4 actively commenced projects – for BMW X1, which was successfully completed in 2015, and Mini Cooper, Mercedes Vito / V - Class and Audi A4. The plant supplies these automotive giants with cable harnesses, which happen to be the “nervous system” of a vehicle. We hope to see some of these vehicles on our roads quite soon. Those would be vehicles that would consist of our parts as well - parts labeled as “Made in Macedonia”.
In the past few years, the number of employees is in constant growth – at the moment, the total number of employees is over 2700. Our activities and responsibilities are divided in accordance with the structure, which consists of 7 departments: Production, Quality, Logistics, Industrial engineering, Human resources, Finances and IT. The production is generally manual and it is carried out on 12 production lines and additional areas for special operations.
The company has largely contributed in the economical development of the city and its surroundings. As a result, it has won several prestigious awards and distinctions:
- Most successful company of 2013 – Awarded by “Bitolski Vesnik” (local newspaper)
- Most successful company of 2012 – Awarded by “Bitolski Vesnik”
