Prague - Czech-based off-highway tyre manufacturer Mitas announced a euro 3.5 million upgrade of its factory in Ruma, Serbia. The Ruma factory, built in 1981, produces agricultural tyres. Mitas acquired the plant in 2008.
Located close to the Russian markets, â€œThe Ruma factory takes advantage of the Free Trade Agreement between Russia and Serbia,â€ Mitas CEO Jaroslav Cechura said. Currently, the Ruma plant is capable of producing, for example, large radial tyres used widely by Russian farmers.
Ruma facility recently obtained the ISO 9001 certificate from SGS, and it has been fully integrated within CGS Holding, which owns Mitas. In 2012, the environmental management system ISO 14001 will be implemented. â€œThe factory has changed controlling of financial flows and procurement, improved production, implemented quality management system, begun reconstructing key machinery, implemented SAP and introduced a balanced score card system,â€ plant director Ivo Somr said.
