In September Elatec officially opened its factory in Gracanica, Bosnia and Herzegovina. The new facility of more than 1,600 m2 will produce SIM cards and packaging and RFID readers/writers. Elatec Group’s Card Solutions and RFID Systems departments will be responsible for the manufacturing of the products with ELCO as a distributor.

All SAS security equipment in the new building is in line with the GSM Association standards for equipment related to the personalization of SIM cards. The facility itself is equipped with cutting-edge machinery and has a two digit million annual capacity.

”Our previous growth supports the goals we are pursuing with the opening of our new factory in Northeast Bosnia and Herzegovina. We want to become one of the leading international centres for the personalization of SIM cards,” explains Benedikt Leisten, Department Manager at Elatec Card Solutions.

The new building’s security systems include 60 surveillance cameras, motion sensors and access control systems. All people and goods that go through the high-security areas - production facility and security control room - are subject to strict control measures.
