Johnson Controls will invest into the development of a new production facility in the Technological Industrial Development Zone Strumica for the manufacture of car seats, creating up to 3,000 jobs over three years. Investors in the special Technological Industrial Development Zones benefit from various approved state support, including site preparation and employee incentive programs.
"We are very pleased again to support Johnson Controls on its investment in new production facilities in South East Europe. This facility forms part of a growing regional manufacturing network providing quality products for car manufacturers and reflects positively on the skills and advantages of the region."
Johnson Controls was advised by Richard Clegg, Jasmina Uzova and Iva Georgieva from the Sofia office of Wolf Theiss, with Ana Minoska in Skopje. This is the latest of a number of manufacturing investments that Wolf Theiss has worked on in Macedonia, Bulgaria and the region for UK, US and Western European companies.
