About this Item

This mav also be the reason that the Croatian Bata company has been allowed to expand its share capital from 40 to 150 million kunas. Because of the leather and shoe shortage in Croatia, the Bata plant is producing rubber compound for soles. Shoe production for civilian use has been greatly curtailed. Of course, the plant may be working on German shoe orders with imported materials. Moreover, it has re¬ portedly, with the help of the State, developed several large shoe-repair shops in important cities. ~

Knock A. G., Riemen- wnd Schuhfabnk, Zagreb, is a German-con¬ trolled company -which owns a factory producing shoes and belting in Zagreb.

Sugar

Erste kroatisch-slavo?iische Zuekerindustrie A. G., Osijek, capital 30 million kunas, is owned by the Kroatische Landesbank and thus in¬ directly by the Dresdner Bank. A part of the shares is owned by the Zivnostmska Banka , Prague. .

At the time of the formation of the “independent” state of Croatia, this was the only sugar factory on Croatian territory. Its capacity was perhaps sufficient to cover one-fourth to one-fifth of the domestic pre-war sugar consumption. To increase the sugar production, the State sponsored and partly financed a new corporation, Zucker- fdbriken A. G., with a capital of 100 million kunas, through which it was planned to develop within 6 years a sugar industry capable of supplying the domestic sugar deficit.

Textiles

Prior to the war, the Croat regions, just as Serbia, had a well-de¬ veloped textile industry, especially in cotton. The Germans had no need for additional textile-manufacturing capacity. They were, how¬ ever, interested in the Croat production of hemp and flax, and hold part ownership in several hemp mills.

The “ Albert ” Industrie und Handels A. G ., Zagreb, capital 15 mil¬ lion kunas, has been taken over partly by the Croat State holding company “Pohit” (35 percent), 32 percent of the shares is owmed by the Bremer Ostafrika G. m. b. H. Bremen, and 33 percent remains in the hands of the Albert family. The company is interested in producing, working, and exporting hemp, flax, and other textiles.

The Jute Industrie A. G ., Karlovac, is capitalized at 3 million kunas. The Flachs-Industrie A. G., Osijek, capital 12 million kunas, has two flax and hemp mills, at Osijek and at Vladislavci, near Osijek. The company is controlled by the Kroatische Landesbank and thus in¬ directly by the Dresdner Bank. This bank also indirectly controls the cotton mill of the Ivancica A. G ., capital 3 million kunas, and the woolen mill of the Zagorjaner /Schafwolhoarqnfabrik A. G., capital 5 million kunas.

Osijeker Seidenweberei A. G., Osijek, capital 10 million kunas, has a silk goods plant in Osijek. Most of the capital of this firm is owned by Swiss silk interests, but Viennese firms have a part interest.

Another important hemp factory in Croatia—the Vukovarer Hanf- fabrik und Spinnerei A. G., Vukovar, capital 6 million kunas—is owned by the First Croat Savings Bank, but it can be safely assumed that its production is earmarked for Germany.
