BAT opens its logistic centre in Pitomača, Croatia
The Hrvatski Duhani company specialised in tobacco wholesale trade, which operates within British American Tobacco (BAT), has opened a regional logistics and distribution centre in Pitomača, northeastern Croatia. The 4,000 sqm facility will be the central point for the provision of tobacco supplies to BAT's factories in Augustow, Poland, Bayreuth, Germany and Pecs, Hungary.
This investment in the new centre ensued after BAT recently invested HRK 400 million in new production lines in its factory in Kanfanar and employed 70 more people at that plant. Last year, the company also invested Kuna 200 million in the Kanfanar factory.
