Godzi wood processing company from northern Kosovo, marked a major step on March 31st, 2017. With the help of EMPOWER Private Sector the company exported its first shipment of wood cutting boards to the German market. The important linkage with the German buyer was made at Kosovo’s first countrywide wood industry convention, co-organized by EMPOWER Private Sector, in October 2016.
Godzi is also the recipient of an EMPOWER Private Sector grant which financed the purchase of a new wood processing machine, enabling the company to expand its production and considerably increase its workforce. Godzi recently signed a lease on a new 1000 square meter factory space where the company will nearly triple his current staff to fulfill the growing demand for his products.
