We are real underdog company born in a garage 30+ years ago

aboutArticle

Despite having over 30 years of market presence, our company was initially confined to producing standard products in the technical textiles sector. As a true underdog company born in a garage, we faced numerous challenges along the way. However, our collaboration with the German group Groz-Beckert and their startup Solidian provided us with opportunities that once seemed unattainable for a small manufacturer of glass reinforcements.

This partnership has offered significant investment opportunities, which is evident in our ongoing investments in the Karlovac region. More importantly, the "new Kelteks" has completely transformed its business strategy and vision. Financial independence has enabled us to focus on new markets, development, and cutting-edge technologies.

This strategic shift has yielded impressive results, with over 40% of our total revenue now generated from products developed by our engineers and produced on machines and technologies created in our own development center.

From 2014 to today, we have invested 17 million euros, and in the next two years alone (not counting the "Slapno" investment), we will invest an additional 25 million euros (which is a total of almost 45 million euros of investment by the end of 2024).

This will result in as many as 15,000 square meters of new production and development facilities, in addition to the additional 50,000 square meters mentioned above through the "Slapno" investment.

Twenty new production lines with sixty new machines will lead to new employment, and we will increase the number of our employees from the existing 350 to a total of 500 new employees.
