Large business delegation with a number of distinguished Austrian companies visited the Mostar Aluminij, where they were hosted by Chief Executive Officer Mario Gadžić, Director of Technical Affairs and Development Boris Vican and Director of Corporate Communications and Marketing Department Darko Juka. Some of these companies have already been operating through their branches or partner companies in BiH and some of them have been considering establishment of their business cooperation in this country.
As part of the Austrian economic mission named the Potentials of Herzegovina, the visit was organized under the auspices of the Austrian Embassy in BiH, and the business delegation was led by gentlemen from their Trade Department, Philippe Kupfer and Elvir Delić. After Kupfer emphasized that the Giant of Herzegovina is an unavoidable address in the protocol of this level visits, Mr Gadžić has presented the Alumnij to the guests, paying special attention to strategic short-term and long-term business development plans, in particular the vision of starting the plant for further processing and finalization of aluminium products.
Given the fact that there were representatives of companies from a multitude of different industries (from metal processing and machine maintenance, to car and rail transport, as well as insurance, trade and green energy) in this group, several potentially interesting ideas were discussed during the two-hour talks.
- This kind of meetings always generate new perspectives, and concretization of the presented ideas should result in further contacts and elaboration of opportunities with each of these companies individually. For years, Austria has been particularly important in economic exchange with BiH, and obviously there is a lot of room for a stronger involvement of Aluminij in some form of cooperation with their companies - said the first man of Aluminij.
Representatives of the following companies paid their visit to the seat of the Mostar smelter: Austrotherm GmbH, Cargo-partner GmbH, Francon GmbH, IBC Solar Austria GmbH, Ishak Mulalic, Rail Cargo Logistics Austria GmbH, Strabag, Value Capital Beteiligungs AG, Vienna Insurance Group AG Wiener Versicherung Gruppe, Voestalpine Böhler Welding Austria GmbH, Voith Hydro GmbH & Co. KG, Weidmüller GmbH.
