Carel Adds European Manufacturing Capacity
Carel has announced a 5,200 sq. metre expansion of its Labin site in Croatia which serves as the headquarters of its subsidiary in the Adriatic.
The new plant responds to a requirement for more flexible production capacity across Europe – and particularly in Eastern Europe where Carel is experiencing rapid growth.
Completion is expected by the beginning of 2022, whcn the group expects to add to 100 new employees to an existing workforce of 200 at the Labin site.
The upgraded facility will also include a showroom to support customer visits to the factory.
Francesco Nalini, Carel Group CEO, comments: “We are very proud to present this new plant in Croatia. Eastern Europe is a rapidly growing market and one where we continue to see excellent results.
“The initiative we have presented fits perfectly into our industrial strategy and our established international network, comprising 9 factories and over 27 commercial subsidiaries worldwide. The group’s solid response to the pandemic has been fully reflected in the positive financial results achieved in 2020, giving us the confidence to continue the development process that has always been a distinctive feature of Carel.”
