Visit to the Pomurje Region and our Members Located in the Area

Last Thursday, Club members visited the Pomurje region where we had the chance to spend some time with the area’s best companies and get to know them better. Each of them writes a story of business success in their own field.​

Upon arrival, we were warmly welcomed to the Roto Company and shown around their new factory in Puconci where they make kayaks and canoes, the production facility and the department for the purifying plants, oil separators, and rainwater tanks. The company’s leading man, Štefan Pavlinjek, revealed their development vision and the importance of the closing phase of the logistics centre for the products produced in Macedonia, Croatia, and Serbia, and distributed all over the world.

After short presentations of the Murska Sobota Development Centre, the Pomurje Technology Park, and the Municipality of Puconci, we continued our trip to the small village of Renkovci, where the Lušt tomatoes are grown on a covered area of 61,000 m2. We learned details of the importance of integrated cultivation and the vision of the company which produces more than 3,300 tons of tomatoes annually.

Our visit continued at the Ocean Orchids Company, which is the leading producer and marketer of orchids in Central and South-Eastern Europe. Our trip was concluded first with the tour of the 53.5m high Vinarium watchtower, a tasting of numerous local wines and then with an excellent dinner at the Lovenjak Restaurant.
