Development of Yugoturbina 1972-1990

Written by

The overall economic and political situation in the former Yugoslavia and Croatia has always been extremely important and influential in the development of the factory. It is known that at the beginning of that period of the factory's development, the economic and political crisis in Yugoslavia and its republics was more and more pronounced.

All the factory's management, from its founding in 1949 until 1990, sought to overcome the effects of the economic and political crisis by constantly expanding production, market and strengthening the economic responsibility of individual productions.

The development of the factory in that period was especially marked by:
- organizational adjustments based on the Constitution and the Law.
- concentration of Karlovac metal industry companies around Yugoturbina.
- department of production parts outside Karlovac.
- further technological development.
