ZAGREB, Sept 12 – The 50-million-kuna headquarters of the Salvus company, specialised in wholesale trade of medicines, medical products, nutritional supplements and cosmetics, was formally inaugurated in the northern town of Donja Stubica on Wednesday evening.
The new offices at 4,400-square–metre premises are one of larger investments in this part of Croatia in recent years, it was said at the ceremony.
Salvus d.o.o. presents itself as “a modern regional company established in 2002 in Croatia, whose business operation is based on wholesale of medicines, medical products, nutritional supplements and cosmetics, as well as on strategic development and building of successful, renown and innovative brands.”
The construction and equipment of the headquarters was co-funded by the European Union funds, said the Salvus management board chairman, Teodor Svaljek.
This year, the company has hired 20 new specialists.
Hrvoje Lisak, an executive in Salvus, said that the company intended now to launch its own production which would be based on a local traditional brand developed 120 years ago by pharmacist Viktor Feller, who lived in Dinja Stubica in the first decades of the 20th century and who was an entrepreneur and pioneer of the industrial drug production in Croatia.
Economy Minister Darko Horvat expressed satisfaction with this investment and prised Salvus for its results including its revenues in the amount of 120 million kuna, including 24 million earned from exports.
