Limec CNC will produce as much as 90% of the products which are currently made in Switzerland, German and Austria. In addition to Europe, Limec Solution, an international producer and system supplier with global manufacturing bases, also sells its products in China, Canada and Mexico. At the opening, director Hans Peter Strebel said that Limec Solution had decided for the Odranci location because they had been cooperating with Slovenian partners for more than 20 years.
