A Chinese multinational automotive manufacturing company and owner of the taxi service in London has hired Lipik Glas to supply windscreens for the new electric-powered and TX5 electric hybrid London black cabs.
Lipik Glas, one of the biggest automotive industry suppliers in Croatia, won the contract to produce windscreens for The London Taxi Company, a manufacturer of the famous London black taxis.
Danijel Zadjelovic, the director of the Lipik Glas company did not hide his satisfaction with the company’s new engagement, ‘’This deal is very important for us because this is a very large quantity. The planned level of production is up to 7,000 taxis annually, which will account for 10 percent of our income in the future”. He also added that apart from 205 employees, the company employed 30 more people in the past few weeks and was planning to invest 30 million Kunas in new machinery and production plants in the next two years.
It is interesting to note that the Croatian company already produced glass for the Aston Martin DB10 which was driven by James Bond in the film Spectre.
