Future orientated approach for optimized supply chains is a very important topic of today, so one of the first steps after the change of shareholder (CERTINA Group erwirbt ISOLITE GmbH) was the decision to establish the subsidiary ISOLITE d.o.o. Baric in Serbia. We are highly pleased and proud to inform you that the registration took place on 2022/12/22.

The takeover of the local business by a newly integrated ISOLITE team and thus the official final opening of the site near Belgrade, will take place at the start of the second quarter of 2023.

With this assembly plant, ISOLITE moves even closer to its long-standing customer Mei Ta Europe. On site, several projects for different German premium OEMs are in series launch. These products are also manufactured and completed using newly designed and specially developed automation systems, as reproducibility and consistent quality are an important part of the automotive supply chain.

Due to the proximity to the internationally recognized and established foundry and machining supplier in the field of turbochargers and exhaust manifolds, Mei Ta Europe, a lean and transparent supply chain is guaranteed. The Mei Ta Europe plant in Serbia currently produces around 1.5 million cast components for Mercedes-Benz and other well-known OEMs. ISOLITE also continues to grow steadily and sees further growth opportunities in this application field – in addition to other new opportunities of applications, also outside the classic combustion engine and in view of the upcoming emission standards (Euro 7).

“For Mei Ta, the largest foundry group for high-alloy, heat-resistant cast steels in the field of turbine housings and exhaust manifolds, it is fundamental and very gratifying that suppliers, such as ISOLITE, who perform further refinement/processing of the components, offer this service on site at our company. The lean supply chain, as well as ensuring the quality requirements on site represent an immediate added value for our OEM and TIER1 customers,” emphasizes Frederick Ritter, Deputy General Manager of Mei Ta Europe Group.

In addition to the locations in Germany, the Netherlands, the USA, Mexico, South Africa and South Korea, the ISOLITE Group is thus expanding its portfolio with the 10th independent operating facility worldwide and continues to look forward to what the future will bring – be curious!
