The development of th Sugar Factory, above all, implied the expansion of its capacity.
From the original 1200 tons of sugar beet per day, its capacity is 5-6 times larger now.
At first, technology and equipment were predominantly of the Czech origin, but in the time the German ones prevailed, either with the installations produced in Germany or with the locally produced equipment under licence.

Along with the basic development, the development of supplementary production also took place.
So, since 1923. the Refinery has been producing ethanol and yeast, and since 1924. refined cube sugar as well.

Before World War II, the Sugar Factory "Crvenka" counted as one of the most modern and largest European sugar factories. It was highly electrificated and had a complete solution for waste water treatment. Furthermore, the Factory has always competent personel whom it educated itself.
today, the prodution process is controled by an installed microprocessor system.
