Corrosion protection manufacturer, CorteCros, daughter company of Cortec Corporation, is proud to announce  that its manufacturing facility in Split, Croatia, is now almost fully solar powered. The company installed new solar panels for energy production last month and is now generating electricity from the panels. Solar panels collect clean renewable energy from the sun and convert it into electrical energy that is used to power CorteCros facility and logistics center.

CorteCros manufacturing facility and warehouse are located in Split, Dalmatia, Croatian coastal region that offers maximum sun exposure. This provides excellent opportunity to utilize energy from renewable resources such as the sun. All companies in Cortec Corporation are environmentally responsible including CorteCros.  Cortec Corporation utilizes sustainable resources in product development and its operations wherever possible. This CorteCros’s green transition to carbon neutral plant and adjustment to our own energy resources is of huge importance for Cortec as environmentally conscious manufacturer.
