Enikom Aerospace Bringing 200 Jobs to Hero City of Vukovar

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 3rd of December, 2019, the CEO of Enikom Aerospace, Marko Josip Andrijanić, and Vukovar Mayor Ivan Penava signed an agreement on leasing office space at the Business Industrial Centre in Vukovar on Tuesday, which will result in the employment of 200 workers in the production of interior components for both passenger and business aircraft.

“I’m looking forward to working with Vukovar, in which we plan to expand our business,” said Andrijanić, stating that Enikom Aerospace has been manufacturing interiors for commercial and private aircraft for more than 40 years in several locations: in the US, Germany, Zagreb and soon in Vukovar. The company, he added, is also working with one of the largest suppliers of aircraft parts for Airbus and Boeing.

 With a direct and very large investment and the employment of about 200 workers, Andrijanić has also opened up the possibility of business cooperation with local entrepreneurs and suppliers in various segments from Vukovar.

He thanked the mator of Vukovar, Ivan Penava and all those involved who enabled the company to expand into the typically overlooked Slavonia and Vukovar with a serious and professional approach.

The Vukovar plant will open its doors in the second quarter of 2020, and future workers, from NKV workers to engineers, will be obliged to undergo training, announced the executive vice president of the company, Jakov Barišić.

“There is no school for our work, we will train the workers and everyone will undergo internal training at our facilities in Croatia and abroad,” Barišić said, adding that workers’ earnings would certainly be above the Croatian average.

He announced that full employment would occur within a period of three years, when up to 1,500 different parts and components for the aviation industry would emerge from production lines in Vukovar daily. Vukovar’s Mayor Penava emphasised that in recent years, a business environment has been created in Vukovar that has led to the opening of new, technologically advanced industries, such as the pharmaceutical and IT sectors, and now the aviation industry is recognising the city’s potential.

“As a city, we have offered what we’ve got, which is namely reliability, transparency and openness, as well as the most favourable conditions,” Penava said. 

Recalling the pre-war times, when Vukovar had about 45,000 inhabitants and 29,000 jobs, Penava stated that today it has about 20,000 inhabitants and that employment has exceeded 10,000. He stressed that 200 new jobs mean a lot, but that in recent years the problem of Vukovar is not just to do with finding jobs, but with a poor demographic picture.
