Yugoturbina in the period 1963-1973

Written by

Period 1963-1973 can be marked as a period of stabilization for production of basic products, and increased production for the domestic market and exports. Employee turnover has calmed, and the number of highly skilled technical but also economic-financial and legal staff is increasing.

The management of the factory has been stabilized as well as the managing people in turbines, engines and pumps. New machine tools are purchased. Turbine, engine and pump test stations are completed. Mechanographic processing of all data is introduced - ARITMA.

Yugoturbina, company for the production of steam and gas turbines, diesel engines and energy equipment, was founded on the initiative of the military authorities in 1949.

Education as one of the most important determinants of factory survival was considered incomplete, with an insufficient number and uncoordinated structure of employees. For example - at the time of the financial crisis, the factory employed 35 graduate mechanical engineers (still insufficient for production), with two graduate economists and one lawyer.

Due to the need for workers of all professions, a comprehensive program of support for employee education has been defined.

With financial, personnel, and moral support, Yugoturbina in Karlovac was the leader in the development of all forms of education at a higher level.
