Interview with Mane Marijan,
Managing Director at DM NIVETA in Serbia
The Z.PARD was a huge relief for us
Serbia’s brush expertise
DM NIVETA in Bački Brestovac in Serbia produces brushes for personal hygiene, household, and industry. They recently decided to acquire a new Z.PARD.
Mane Marijan, Managing Director at DM NIVETA, explains why.
The Z.PARD produces as quickly as its name promises
CONTACT: Mr. Marijan, why did you decide to acquire a ZAHORANSKY machine?
Mane Marijan: Our incoming orders have increased significantly. In order to process all these orders, we needed to increase our tufting volume with an additional machine.
CONTACT: How did you find your first experiences with the Z.PARD?
Mane Marijan: Finally having the Z.PARD in our facility was a huge relief. The commissioning was really simple – something we haven’t experienced with other machines. After the installation and commissioning, we were able to start producing the first brushes with it after less than a week.
CONTACT: How were your later experiences?
Mane Marijan: Thanks to this machine, we are able to produce the numbers required for our orders. Within a short amount of time, we were able to produce around 3,000 brushes per shift with just one machine operator. The Z.PARD therefore undoubtedly kept its promises.
“Within a short amount of time, we were able to produce around 3,000 brushes per shiftwith just one machine operator.”
Full power: The Z.PARD enables a quick production start after commissioning
CONTACT: How would you evaluate your collaboration with ZAHORANSKY?
Mane Marijan: I tend to like meeting challenges alone. I only involve technicians or the service team if I have very serious machine problems. We have area specialists from ZAHORANSKY in the region – this enables quick and easy communication and support, including for when we need replacement parts. We are very satisfied with our collaboration.
CONTACT: What do you think of your first experiences with the Z.PARD? What advantages have you found?
Mane Marijan: As I mentioned before, my main objective was the large output. In addition, maintenance is relatively low. Switching to another product is simple and doesn’t require much time. The tufting tools are easy to operate. They are also easy to access.
“Finally having the Z.PARD in our facility was a huge relief. The commissioning was really simple.”
Mane Marijan – DM Niveta
“I want to spend as little time as possible on the machine maintenance. They also need to be reliable – our customers expect to receive their products punctually and in excellent quality.”
CONTACT: You have relied on ZAHORANSKY machinery for several years. Can you still remember the early days?
Mane Marijan: It was maybe 30 or even 40 years ago that my father began the business relationship with ZAHORANSKY. Following our many experiences with other machine manufacturers since then, we are happy to keep relying on ZAHORANSKY.
CONTACT: How do you feel about the service provided by the After Sales team?
Mane Marijan: Communication has become a lot easier since Volker Muno and Ivailo Antov took over this department. There are no delays and we speak on a regular basis – this is very important to me.
