  • Scientific progress

    Through years of work and experience in solving construction and production problems, more and more science has been incorporated into products and processes. Increasingly, self-developed electronics, a development laboratory, computer programs, and computer-aided informatics and organizations were used. At the end of the 60's, the" Research and Development" unit was established, and at the end of the 70's, the "Jugoturbine Institute". The development of basic products remained in the working organizations for the production of steam turbines, engines and pumps, but more and more laboratories, computer capacities, development and investment engineers were concentrated in the Institute, which reached 330 employee's in the mid-1980s.

  • Meeting the housing needs of employees

    The work process in Jugoturbina required educated profiled workers, who then came from all parts of the country. A large number of young people were educated to work in Jugotubina and live in Karlovac. Most of them were separated from their parents and were forced to solve their housing problem in Karlovac. With the construction of the factory, the Švarča settlement was built, which partially met the needs of the first workers who arrived. Single hotels were the only accommodation for young workers including whole families. Within the framework of housing programs, funds have been provided for the construction of 100 apartments.

  • Yugoturbina - Planning and development of new jobs

    The development of Yugoturbina in 1973 and further, which we previously wrote about, is essentially related to its strategic orientation towards the world market. This is best illustrated by the fact that the share of exports in total revenue in 1979 was only 5%, in 1980 11%, and in 1985 44%.

    In 1985, the ratio of convertible exports to imports was achieved with an index of 225. Thus, convertible exports are almost 2.3 times higher than convertible imports.

    Thus, an active exporter was finally realized. In the economic conditions, that was a great achievement and an excellent positioning for new ambitious jobs and development plans.

    All other qualitative growth indicators show above-average tendencies in that period. "Yugoturbina" was connected with numerous companies through organization in communities for joint performance on the domestic and foreign markets in complex facilities and towards the state to ensure favorable business conditions and performance of investment equipment manufacturers such as INGRA, JADRANBROD, DUNAVBROD, ZINVOJ, JUMEL...

    The expansion of production, intensive development and the opening of new plants were in the observed period the basic features of the work and operations of Yugoturbina, which led to a larger increase in the number of employees.

    In 1977, Yugoturbina employed 5,000 workers, and in 1986 it was 8,593, in nine years the number of employees increased by 2984. If the natural annual outflow is taken into account, it means that about 430 new workers were employed annually, or a total of 3870.

    At the same time, the increase in the number of employees significantly changed the qualification structure, in which the educational level of workers with higher education is growing faster.

    Such intensive development was followed and at the same time enabled adequate business results and a relatively good position on the domestic and world markets.
