MFG is a group of companies gathered and founded by the Matic family. What makes MFG stand out is the combination of traditional and modern business while respecting all the high norms of contemporary business, not forgetting about the traditions of their ancestors, the excellent hospitality where the friendly manners cultivated.
Our ancestor Branko Radulovac recorded his first entrepreneurial steps in 1928 when he founded a trading shop in Vršac. With the development of his business in 1931, he received an additional assurance that he could freely sell all kinds of salt for human and animal feed in small quantities. Insisting on providing full service to his customers, Branko carefully chose his employees and apprentices with a particular emphasis on providing customers with support in all languages spoken in Vršac at the time, which were, in addition to Serbian, German, Romanian, Hungarian, and Roma languages.
He reached his peak business in the late 1930s when he owned three stores that he ran together with his wife and became one of the prominent members of the Merchants’ Association of Serbia and Yugoslavia.
The family entrepreneurial tradition continues with Branislav Matić, an entrepreneur since 1990. Through more than 30 years of entrepreneurial work, he recorded his most tremendous success in foreign trade and trade in building materials, which he worked on until the end of the first decade of the 20th century.
In the middle of the first decade of the 21st century, we founded Energowind ltd to develop and exploit wind farms in Serbia. With its establishment, Energowind was also one of the first companies in Serbia for which renewable energy sources were the primary activity. During 2007-2008, the company signed cooperation agreements in the field of RES with local self-governments Vrsac, Plandište, Alibunar, and Bela Crkva.
After a period of preliminary selection of locations and insights into the archives of meteorological data for the wider region of Southern Banat, the company, in early 2008, determined favorable locations for the start of measurements and erected two measuring masts 60 meters high. After obtaining the final measuring results and preparing the first studies of energy potential for specific interest sites by reference European meteorological companies, the company defines its first location for constructing a wind farm in the territory of the municipality of Plandište. In 2010, Energowind founded the subsidiary Wind Park Plandište d.o.o. with the unique goal of developing a wind farm in the territory of the municipality of Plandište. To verify and correlate the obtained measurement data from measuring locations with wind parameters at the site planned for the future wind park, wind park company Plandište, at the beginning of 2011, raised a measuring mast height of 125 meters, one of the first in Serbia . In parallel with obtaining the remaining project documentation, measuring data are collected from this measuring mast, whose verification confirms positive results from previously estimated locations. Additional studies of energy potential and the selection of final configurations of wind turbines were necessary to complete the project documentation towards obtaining a location and construction permit. t was a period in which Energowind established long-lasting cooperation with numerous domestic and foreign companies operating in the RES region. Over time, the cooperation has strengthened and today we can proudly say that we have collaborators in all areas of importance for energy. In 2012, Wind Park Plandiste acquired the construction permit for Plandište wind farm with rated power of 102 MW. The complete project was sold to NIS in 2013. After the sale of the Plandište wind farm, Energowind established new companies that, according to the principle of - one company, one project - continue the independent development of wind farm projects at the locations of the mentioned municipalities.
As of 2022, the family group operates under the MFG brand, continuing the entrepreneurial tradition and following all modern business trends.
