Hisense has invested 45 million euros in a new factory for the production of cutting-edge refrigeration appliances in Valjevo. In the new Valjevo 3 factory they will manufacture side-by-side refrigerators under the Hisense, Gorenje, and Asko brands, primarily for export to demanding European markets. The opening ceremony that marked the completion of the construction and the official opening of the factory was attended by the Serbian Prime Minister Ms Ana Brnabić.
Gorenje has been operating in Valjevo for 17 years, providing over 1,750 jobs to the residents of Valjevo and the Kolubara District. The opening of our new factory signifies the employment of an additional 1,000 workers over the next three years. The factory is situated next to the existing one on a 45,000 m² site, housing a modern production hall covering 30,000 m², warehouses, and a state-of-the-art cafeteria for employees. The planned production in the new factory will reach 750,000 side-by-side appliances annually, contributing to a total production of 1.7 million appliances per year across all three Gorenje Valjevo facilities by 2025.
«This factory represents a significant investment and is a testament to our unwavering commitment to this community, this country, and the European market – said Hanson Han, CEO of Hisense Europe group –. Beyond our business endeavors, we believe in giving back to the community that has embraced us and made us feel at home. Recognizing our social responsibility, we have made substantial donations to improve the quality of life for the people of this region. On this occasion, I would like to express my gratitude to the Government of the Republic of Serbia. Their support and understanding of the importance of this project were crucial in making today’s event a reality.»
