Partnership to success
Idea on Neofyton stemmed from a desire of a machine engineer and economist, Stojan Tadic in order to ensure a bright future for his sons. The company’s name resulted from researching the history of Novi Sad in 18th and 19th century during Greek-Serbian trade peak. The company was named after Greek term for “novi sad” (flower, crop) – “neofyton”, symbolizing the company’s development and growth as a new life.
From the very first moment, the entire family was actively involved in business operations. Zoran was completing polymer technologies at the Faculty of Technology, therefore it was logical to join the business of machine and spare parts trade. Stojan was the general manager from the beginning, and a very successful one as witnessed from the present state of the company. Soon upon completion of studies, Zoran signed the first manufacturer’s representative agreement with company “Dr Boy”, which was a turning point. Mother Radmila has been a moral support from the start, as well as the manager of accounting department. Brother Miroslav has taken over all operations related to logistics, freight and transport. Neofyton company has covered all segments in order to achieve their initial goal – “All services from a single source”.
In 1992, company Neofyton was established with the idea to provide turnkey solutions, including designing systems and installing plastic injection machines, as well as training.

Neofyton signed a contract with company Eurochiller – manufacturer of industrial cooling systems and chillers.
“ENGEL” & “TRIA”
In 2009, Neofyton signed contracts with companies ENGEL and TRIA. Engel is one of the world leading manufacturers of plastics and rubber injection molding machines. Furthermore, Tria granulators for plastics are a perfect solution for all industrial plastics processing procedures.
We signed a contract with company Piovan, one of the leading suppliers of ancillary equipment for the plastic industry.
We opened a representative office in Zagreb, Croatia.
As the representative for markets in Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, Montenegro and Slovenia, Neofyton became the representative for African market in 2016 where new representative office is to be established (NEOFYTON Nigeria & Cameroon). Moreover, in 2016, Neofyton signed a contract with company “MB Conveyors” with 25 yearlong tradition and experience regarding mechanics and conveying lanes.
Neofyton has entered the new headquarters located in Partizanska streed no. 27b, in Novi Sad. The facility covering 1.300 m² area was purchased with the financial aid from the company Engel, and with general intention to provide additional services to our buyers.
PROPAK WEST AFRICA 2018 & ITF

Let us preserve the environment for future generations
Energy efficiency is a concept that in our part of the world became important towards the end of 2008 and the beginning of 2009, at the outset of the world economic crisis. Most business people had, until then, mostly declaratively considered power consumption as a significant element of the total cost analysis. In these considerations, the impact of energy efficiency on the environment pollution had hardly been tackled at all.
Neofyton was among the first companies in Serbia and the region to start actively demonstrating the importance of energy efficiency, both by cutting production costs and therefore increasing profit rates and building awareness of the resource shortage and broader ecological principles.
Energy savings through the use of Neofyton’s machines
In comparison with our direct competitors in the field of plastics injection machines, and with the utilization of standard hydraulics with integrated so-called “smart” pumps, our machines consume as much as 50% less energy. The use of servo-hydraulics opens up the potential of savings as high as 70%. We have a very precise power consumption measuring device to prove this.
The company Engel was the first plastics injection machine manufacturer back in 2009, which introduced the power consumption page as a standard component of the control assembly – “Ecograph”, where – next to the weight of each product (molded part) in every cycle – total hourly consumption is shown, as well as the specific power consumption per one kilogram of processed plastics (kWh/kg).
The equipment we represent contributes to ENVIRONMENT PROTECTION in several ways. When it comes to ancillary equipment, above all water chillers by our supplier Eurochille, used for temperature control of both hydraulics and machine servo motors and molds (tools) in which finished products are made, the chiller systems we sell facilitate the use of a new cooling system based on the so-called “adiabatic effect”.
In summer, the hydraulics and servo motors of the injection molding machines call for cooling with water at a maximum of 28°C. Using the so-called “free cooling” device with the “adiabatic effect”, cooling of process water is performed without cooling compressors (which use freon as the heat exchanger). Heat exchange, i.e. cooling happens exclusively by the use of ventilators, which translates into six- to eightfold savings compared to traditional chillers that use freon- based compressors.
One of our customers has reduced the required cooling energy by 1.400.000 kWh per year, i.e. by about 70.000 EUR, using the “adiabatic” cooling devices. An additional benefit is the elimination of major pollution risks which might arise from emissions of freon into the atmosphere due to tube puncture or breakage.
A similar calculation can be applied to our Engel injection molding machines, as well as to the Piovan granulate dryers.

Address by the general manager of the Neofyton company
The most successful year so far
During 2019, our company continued to develop in the most important business sectors of selling machines and equipment in the ex-YU markets, but it also started selling and placing machines and equipment in the market of Nigeria. Moreover, in September of 2019, we took part once again in the PROPAK WEST AFRIKA 2019 – fair in Nigeria, where, in co-operation with our partners ENGEL, PIOVAN and a Serbian company INMOLD, we presented not only machines and equipment, but also a complete range of services our company provides: engineering, designing, personnel training, and post-sales services.
A year of recognitions
It is our pleasure and honor to have become winners of two prestigious and important awards in 2019 – the Award for Corporate Social Responsibility “Đorđe Vajfert” and the Grand Prix 63 awarded at the Belgrade Technical Fair. These recognitions are telling us that Neofyton is headed in the right direction.
Investment in education is one of the major strategies of our company. When I say this, I do not only mean the education of our staff, but above all the education of new experts at the University of Novi Sad. In the course of 2018, a Polymer Laboratory within the Faculty of Technical Sciences, in co-operation with the Faculty of Technology, was started. Every year, students will acquire necessary knowledge in the field of plastic injection and, what is particularly important, gain integrated knowledge about industry in general, about connecting injection molds (which is pure machine engineering) with plastics processing related to the polymer industry, as well as ancillary technologies such as drying, grinding and subsequent conversion into finished products, through the application of state-of-the-art achievements in Industry 4.0, related to processing industry.
The success of a company may be measured by the usual methods, through accounting reports, sales reports or market share, but I want to point out an especially important aspect for me, and it is the human factor. I feel that in 2018 we managed to further improve interpersonal relations in our company, to create an even more efficient team, which ensures support to our customers in an efficient way. We also engaged two engineers from Nigeria, who are now an integral part of the Neofyton team which is growing and becoming increasingly efficient, to the pleasure and benefit of our partners, who are the very reason for our existence – as our motto says:
Through partnership to success!
