Bosnia-Herzegovina – Garment Factory
Bontex DOO


The Swiss investor originates from Bosnia-Herzegovina. He started this green field operation in a region with a long tradition in tailoring. Today however, the region suffers of high unemployment.

The investor bought used equipment from an idle sewing factory in Switzerland and acquired contracts for sewing work from clients in Switzerland. Increasing productivity, further specialization and increase of capacity enabled Bontex to acquire further contracts with higher margins and to become today’s successful factory employing 186 people.
