On June 28th, 2017, USAID Mission Director James Hope visited KOSHI GROUP in Prizren to see the progress the company has made with EMPOWER Private Sector’s support. KOSHI GROUP is a highly specialized producer of carbon fiber automotive body components. During the visit, the company owner Shkamb Koshi explained the process of making carbon fiber components and showed examples of their work. Mission Director Hope was very pleased to see a Kosovo company producing such specialized unique products which are sold to buyers from many different countries around the world.
Shkamb Koshi established and moved the business from Italy to Prizren in 2014. With the support of EMPOWER Private Sector in partnership with Sida – Styrelsen för Internationellt Utvecklingssamarbete, KOSHI GROUP participated in international fairs two years in a row. They showcased their products at the E.R. Motorfest trade fair in Italy in 2016, and the JEC World 2017 (world’s largest composites show) in Paris in March 2017. The company’s participation at the fairs exposed them to buyers from around the world, thus increasing demand for their products.
