Project Description

The proposed project consists of the renovation of a disused brick factory in Sarajevo for production of a range of clay bricks. The funds will be used for the reconstruction of the building and acquisition of new equipment for TOS, a subsidiary of Nasicecement d.o.o from Croatia (the “Sponsor”). The Sponsor is a cement and building materials producer with operations in the former Yugoslav region. The aim is to support the Sponsor in becoming a diversified producer of building materials.

Transition Impact

The main transition impact of the proposed project will derive from the increased competition due to higher local production, a new product range of high quality and improved cost effectiveness. The proposed project will promote cross-border investments and regional consolidation in the industry.

TOS will be organised with best standards of practice and corporate governance. It will follow the corporate governance guidelines of the Sponsor that will include transparent processes and procedures in decision making. The proposed project will benefit from a management and human resources plan that the Sponsor is currently implementing.
