KOSOVO – A Dutch company has opened a huge foundry in Kosovo, last Friday. Ebbers Group Industries supplies aluminum, bronze, steel, and cast iron objects. One third of the production moves to the new location in Kosovo.
“Some companies in Kosovo might prefer to buy their products in Turkey, rather than let their products being made in Kosovo”, says director Henk Ebbers. “Therefore, I do have one message: buy Kosovar goods, so we will help each other.”
“I would like to make a point here”, says Carel Brands of the Dutch embassy in Pristina, “the work of establishing the factory was done by Kosovar workers. Kosovo offers very skilled workers, who are dedicated to their job. That is where you can be proud of.”
Director Henk Ebbers came in touch with Kosovo, because of the fact that 15 per cent of his employees in The Netherlands are originally from Kosovo.
