Odelo Slovenija, a subsidiary of the German based Odelo (owned by the Turkish Bayraktarlar), will employ 100 new workers by the end of 2017. Odelo produces lightening equipment (complex taillight systems and LEDs) for automobile producers, like BMW, Mercedes, Audi, Volkswagen and Porsche. The production growth in the last year was higher than expected, so Odelo employed 370 new workers from October 2016 to April 2017. The company continues investments in its two Slovenian plants in Prebold (Savinjska region) and Črešnjevci (Prekmurska region). Investments in production facilities will amount in total to € 30 million in the period 2016–2017. Odelo, which is currently employing 1,270 workers, is going to hire 100 additional workers (mainly machine operators) by the end of this year and few dozens more in 2018.
