Dornbirn, Austria, 27.01.2017, 04:30 pm – Austrian lighting company Zumtobel Group is to expand its production network by adding a new plant in Niš, southern Serbia. The project was approved at today’s meeting of the company’s Supervisory Board. The primary role of the planned luminaire plant in Serbia is to handle the additional volumes that are planned for the years ahead. In a market environment marked by high pressure on prices, the new site will offer the Zumtobel Group the opportunity to supply its core European market at optimal cost.

When the final phase of construction work is completed, the new plant will have cost up to EUR 30 million. The plant will be built in two phases covering the next two and a half financial years. The first luminaires are slated to roll off the production lines at the new factory in financial 2018/19.
