Association's executive board (right).
Hydraulic seals manufacturing company "Higum - M" is the only small enterprise in our municipality
that last year has acquired ISO 9001 quality certificate. Besides "Higum M", "Vojvodina - put" and
"Proizvodnja Mile Dragic" - both very large companies have also acquired quality certificates ISO
9001 and ISO 14000, respectively. That was the best recommendation to the Regional Chambers of
Commerce that on the traditional New Years Gathering recognize and award the family enterprise owned
by Veselin Milosev and his sons, Zeljko and Zikica for the improvements in technology, product
development and successful expansion of production program as well as certified quality management system.
Milosev family organized a small festivity in the Private Entrepreneurs Association's head office that was
attended by their business partners, Association members and local government representatives, president of Zrenjanin
municipality Milan Cezek and president of Municipalities executive committee Goran Knezevic. President of Private
Entrepreneurs Association executive board Miroslav Kostic has presented the excellence award to Veselin Milosev and
wished the Higum M a prosperous future. He added that the Association has only five members with a quality certificate,
which makes the Higum M's success even more momentous.

Among the big industry names by product quality
Among the awarded enterprises on the Zrenjanin Regional Chamber of Commerce's gathering is "Higum M"
- a small company owned by Veselin Milosev and his sons, Zeljko and Zikica. "Higum M" is the only small
enterprise has last year acquired the ISO 9001 certificate in our municipality. Besides Higum M, quality
certificates also obtained "Vojvodina - put" (ISO 9001) and "Proizvodnja Mile Dragic" (ISO 14000).
We really did not expect this award so that makes this recognition even more important to us. We are
thankful to Private Entrepreneurs Association that nominated the "Higum M" to the Regional Chamber of
Commerce - Veselin Milosev said.
As well as getting the ISO 9001 certificate, "Higum M" made this year a formidable step forward from manufacturing
hydraulic seals only for agriculture industry to expanding toward foods, chemical, oil and water supply industries.
We developed two new hydraulic seals product groups using the latest computer technology. These newly developed
products were imported until now. We also worked more in the field of marketing and on acquiring more technical
expertise. In that sense we were much benefited by our visit to the Munchen trade fair - Milosev said.
"Higum M" presented a few months ago its modern web site which made the company one of the extraordinary local
enterprises that takes the orders over the internet. Family-owned enterprise has about 5000 products in its
production program - about twice as it had two years ago. Plans for next year include development of two new
hydraulic sets generations, which would - with the proved quality and affordable prices - allow "Higum M" to
expand even more to the Serbian and markets of the former Yugoslav republics.
