September the 10th, 2022 – The Koprivnica-based Nexe Group (Grupa) has completed its impressive 4.3 million kuna investment.
As Poslovni Dnevnik/Jadranka Dozan writes, on Wednesday, Koprivnica’s Nexe Group marked the completion of the investment of one of its components, the Koprivnica company IGMA, in a new concrete plant.
This component is involved in the exploitation and processing of gravel and sand and the production of concrete and concrete elements, and the investment in the concrete plant in Drnje worth a massive 4.3 million kuna also equals the modernisation of concrete production and adaptation to new technologies.
As the company pointed out, the construction project included a concrete production area with a mixer, an in-line aggregate tank with a total capacity of 120 m3, and three cement silos with a capacity of 80 m3 each. The accompanying buildings next to the concrete plant, the additive storage and control container, and the waste concrete separator have also been completed.
On the occasion of the presentation of the work of the new concrete plant, it has been stated that the goal of this investment is the additional rationalisation of resource management, the additional improvement of product quality and the level of environmental protection, as well as the meeting of increasing market demands. IGMA also explained that it is a logical sequence of the company’s growth and development, which resulted in a 10 percent increase in revenue and a 27 percent increase in net profit back in 2021.
Karlo Sisl, the director of IGMA, said that he believes that with this project, the company will continue its market success and secure a future for both its workers and production. This Koprivnica company has been operating as part of the wider Nexe Group since back in 2006, and since then, investments worth more than 86 million kuna have been made in the modernisation of technology, new products and quality.
“At IGMA, we apply the following business policies: investing in production, business processes, employees, as well as building relationships with the local community. Current projects confirm that the Nexe Group intends to further develop its operations across Koprivnica, among which, the EU-funded project to increase energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy sources stands out. Support for this project was approved from the Competitiveness and Cohesion Operational Programme of the European Fund for Regional Development and the EU Mechanism for Recovery and Resilience tender, in the amount of 14.5 million kuna.
