Bosnia-Herzegovina – Industrial Textiles
Tissa Textiles d.o.o.

Projekt Beschreibung

The Swiss investor has over 20 years of experience in the textile industry. The expansion into Bosnia-Herzegovina shall create a win-win situation with speciality production in Switzerland and potential for larger volumes in Bosnia-Herzegovina

Tissa Textiles looks back on over 50 years of family tradition in textile production. In an environment of stiff competition the company has established itself as niche producer of speciality products. However, to serve clients in a comprehensive way it also must offer higher volumes. This gave the impetus for setting up a production in Bosnia-Herzegovina.

The region of Gornji Vakuf/Uskoplie where the production will be based is located outside the urban centers and the new company will create much needed jobs for the local economy.

The Swiss investor received a loan from the SSF, co-financing the start-up phase. The loan was necessary to purchase equipment and to provide working capital.

 

Development Impact

Creation of 18 jobs for people without specific prior qualification, comprehensive training  of transfer of knowhow
