By David Leggett

Magna has opened its second seating products plant in the southern Serbian city of Aleksinac.

It said the President of the Republic of Serbia, Aleksandar Vucic and members of government and other local representatives attended the opening ceremony.

The greenfield facility, which covers an area of approx. 8,300 square meters, currently employs around 780 people with the expectation to potentially increase the workforce up to approximately 1,000 employees by the end of 2022.

“Making this investment reflects the growth in demand for our seating products and positions us in close proximity to our customer,” said John Wyskiel, President, Magna Seating. “We’d like to thank the Serbian government for their support and collaboration in the planning of this site.”

The new facility is Magna’s second plant in Serbia and 36th overall throughout in Eastern Europe. The new plant will produce seat trim covers and leather kits for a European automaker.

Magna also has a seat trim plant at Odžaci in Serbia which was established in 2013. Its customers include Ford, Skoda, Audi and Renault.
