One such dealer is Oreco of Croatia, which has recently opened a state-of-the-art manufacturing and service centre in the Kukuljanovo Industrial Zone near Rijeka.
The new facility is approved for the servicing of Cummins marine engines and Oreco has installed a power bank, so it can assemble Cummins Marine generator sets including the Onan marine generator range. It has a 550 sqm service area and parts warehouse, a covered washing area and 244 sqm of office space.
Based 3 km from the port of Bakar and 12 km from the port of Rijeka, Oreco is best known for its work in the Marine sector. It serves shipping firms and shipyards along the Adriatic coast up to 300km from its base.
Nenad Oreskovic, CEO of Oreco, said the decision to invest in the new facility came after 27 years in business during which time the company had formed strong relationships with a number of prestigious US and European brands, including Cummins. For some of its partners, Oreco performs service across the whole of Croatia and neighbouring Slovenia.
“We are proud to be a full service Cummins dealer and our new facility will help us further differentiate our services so our customers can see our superior quality, value and performance,” said Mr. Oreskovic.
Mauro Tardelli, Cummins Country Leader for Italy, under whose jurisdiction Oreco falls, praised the Kukuljanovo initiative and the high standards to which Oreco’s sales and technical staff are trained.
“It is very gratifying to see the investment being made by Oreco. Based on the quality of its operation and the way it has built such a strong customer base, Oreco has every reason to feel confident about its future.”
Oreco’s team includes two specialist marine engineers, six technicians (mechanics/ electrics/ electronics) and two sales specialists. Among its customers are the national ferry operator Jadrolinija, private ferry operator Rapska plovidba, shipping companies Tankerska, Atlantska, Thome Ship Management and Gestmar Tehnika, plus several state institutions and many smaller companies.
