A new textile factory, Stefan Teks, has been opened in Tetovo by businessman Jovan Stefanovski.

The facility, which has a staff of 54, will initially operate under outsourcing agreements and tailor men's shirts for an Italian partner.

While his actual investment in the factory was not disclosed, Stefanovski said he planned to install equipment capable of producing all types of apparel, and would double staff numbers in the near future.
