SUBOTICA, SERBIA – June 11, 2013: After a construction period of just one year, ContiTech Fluid Technology has opened the new production site for hose lines in Subotica, northern Serbia.

The plant has been supplying to customers from the automotive industry since October 2012. Around 150 workers are currently employed at the plant, and by the end of the year there should be 250.

ContiTech invested over €10 million in the new plant. Certified to all required quality standards, the plant expands the production capacity of hose line specialist ContiTech Fluid Technology, a ContiTech business group. Hose lines for the drive train are assembled in Subotica and delivered to European automotive manufacturers.

For the time being, around 80 different parts are produced, totaling 1.8 million per year. The plot in the duty-free zone in the Mali Bajmok industrial park, where a production hall covering nearly 7,200 square meters has been built, offers sufficient space for possible extensions to the plant in the future.
