The 4,000-square-large facility will store tobacco supplies from 26 countries and will be the central point for the provision of tobacco supplies to BAT’s factories in Augustow, Poland, Bayreuth, Germany and Pecs, Hungary.
The capacity of the Pitomača-based logistics and distribution centre is 18,500 standard boxes of tobacco.
This investment in the centre ensued after BAT recently invested HRK 400 million in new production lines in its factory in Kanfanar and employed 70 more people at that plant. Last year, it also invested 200 million kuna in the Kanfanar factory.
By investing a total of HRK 600 million in its factory in Kanfanar, Istria this and last year, BAT has positioned Croatia firmly at the centre of transformation in line with the group’s strategy aimed at building a better tomorrow, Tamás Nyaka, Head of Operations at BAT Adria was quoted as saying.
The Kanfanar factory is one of the four factories in Europe that will be producing new categories of tobacco products.
