The opening was attended by Grundfos’s Serbian director, Veljko Todorovic, as well as by Danish Ambassador Suzan Shain, who highlighted current cooperation between the two countries.
The new, 17,000 square-meter investment was valued at EUR 21 mln and is slated to become the largest such factory in the world, according to www.aroj.net.

The EU has voiced its disapproval with a new consulting/cooperation plan that was signed between Russia and Serbia only days after Russian mobilization.
