Short Project Description:
The Project ‘Boosting the competitiveness of KIRCEK d.o.o. (Ltd.) through development and diversification of its production capacity’ has been approved within the Operational Programme ‘Competitiveness and Cohesion 2014 -2020’, under Priority Axis 3 – Business Competitiveness in Investment, Priority 3d – Supporting the Capacity of SMEs to Grow in Regional, National and International Markets, and Engaging in Innovation Processes, and Specific Objective 3d1 – the Development of SMEs and Growth Improved in Domestic and Foreign Markets.
The Project will create the basic preconditions for further development and optimisation of the Company’s production process.
Through the project implementation, the Company will boost the level of its technological readiness and productivity by investing in the expansion of its production capacity, i.e. by building a drying kiln and a workshop where its products will be controlled, sorted and packed, supplying the equipment for connecting the drying kiln and the newly-built facilities with the existing boiler room, wood-drying units, width- and length- panel gluing machines and equipment for processing solid panels, as well as by providing employee training in the use of new equipment. This will improve the production process and directly increase the Company’s production capacity. All of the above will lead to an increase in its competitiveness and sustainable development in both domestic and international markets, thus contributing to SMEs’ competitiveness on a larger scale.
