Since the end of last year, YUMCO has been manufacturing jackets for work in extremely cold conditions for British company Flexitog. Starting January 2016, YUMCO is to deliver 10,000 jackets on a monthly basis to this British company. These two companies were connected thanks to the efforts of the Embassy of the Republic of Serbia.
YUMCO’s director, Goran Djordjevic, sent a letter of thanks to the Embassy of Serbia in the UK. In a Serbian weekly NIN of 24 December 2015, he said: ”We have concluded contracts for Finnish and Polish armies and thanks to efforts of Ambassador Ognjen Pribicevic, we now have a deal for British market. This is a modest start, but for the next year we signed an export contract worth 1.5 million pounds. Our embassy in London is a inspiring example how all our embassies around the world should promote the interests of domestic manufacturers. Las month, we had a 6 per cent increase in salaries and this month we shall have approximately a 5 per cent raise.
